An Short StoryA short story
Hadley about what makes a successful little novel.
There' have been some really good tales - always such a big help when you find the first one that really inspires you. Disputing about the tales at the jury sessions was such a delight, that's what accounting professionals like to do. You can really do them justice by reading out a bit, fighting about whether something works, exchanging interpretation, rethinking each other.
Yes, it's a very non-natural way to read: so many different tales in a row. However, it deprives the opulence of the read, the gradual enjoyment of being alone with a good tale, to let it immerse, to echo all the detail of being. So what makes a history?
Some of the short films are also beautifully comic. There is another thing here that is hard to express: a history should have a meaning. There is no point that can be separated from the history itself: point is not the same as point. It should make a good tale seem as if it opens up something new to our perceptions that counts.
Can you say in the first few lines whether a history will make an impression on you? Often a storyline begins well and then does not keep its promise. Why did you put one narrative at the top of the pack and another at the side? This narrative is tricky - its implication and content can be enormous, but everything that has to be on a small machine.
Neither should a tale ever seem as if marionettes had been danced to the author's music. It' s just possible that a storyline wasn't right for these particular readers: that doesn't necessarily mean it was a failure. Submit your tales and then leave them out. You' re reading with another part of your thoughts; you keep the doors to your own tales closed.
It excites you about the shape, it stretches your mind for what can be done with it, how adaptable it is. Thus authors often better, more unexpected when they try to record their intangible truths on the page.
