What’s a story
A collection of words.
A collection of related words.
A collection of ideas and thoughts put down in writing.
A story goes from A to B (or from a to be?). It starts at the beginning and comes to an end, often with a detour.
The best stories have the longest detours. The best stories start in the middle.
A story has a narrative; has sentences that convey meaning of some kind.
A story can be told in words. A story can be told in pictures.
One picture per word, one picture per sentence, one picture per paragraph.
I can write a story in pictures, or create a picture from words.
