Assignment 2

Assignment 2 is a 750 - 1000 fiction story. Yesterday and today I've been reading the recommended reading. I really like Trucks by Amy Bechtel and the ending of Mrs. Comfrey Wins by Patricia Windsor. The author Carol Parker writes short stories with twists at the end. I love that type of ending. Always so unexpected. Even after reading her stories for the past 5 years. I've also gone to the student center and read about characters, craft and technique and plotting the 1000 word story.

My mind is churning with ideas. Will update Monday.

Have a great weekend.

Will "Trucks" be an adequate model for this assignment? Does it have a strong, FLORIDLY DESCRIBED, central character? Good story, though, in any event.

LOL. No, but "Trucks" is a good story to follow structure.

Yes. Trucks sort of kept the reader in suspense until the end. Not easy to do in a short, short story.
