featuring Karlo Niño E. Pinar's short stories and other favorite short stories
A short story is a work of fiction that is usually written in prose, often in
narrative format. This format tends to be more pointed than longer works of fiction,
such as novellas (in the 20th and 21st century sense) and novels or books. Short story definitions based upon length differ somewhat even among professional writers, due somewhat in part to the fragmentation of the medium into genres. Since the short story format includes a wide range of genresand styles, the actual length is mitigated somewhere between the individual author's preference (or the story's actual needs in terms of creative trajectory or story arc) and the submission guidelines relevant to the story's actual market. Guidelines vary greatly among publishers.
Many short story writers define their work through a combination of creative, personal expression and artistic integrity. As a result, many attempt to resist categorization by genre as well as definition by numbers, finding such approaches limiting and counter-intuitive to artistic form and reasoning.As a result,definitions of the short story based upon length splinter even more when the writing process is taken into consideration
the Creator's Note
Karlo Niño E. Pinar
The truth is I have no interest in writing short stories since I was a child. I only started writing stories when I was already in high school. I don’t know why.I got my interest into writing stories because I realized that I’m a much better author than those who write short stories as my age. It might be a but cliché, but Isee my stories ashumorous and inspirational. I believe that students my age also have to develop their writing abilities. I may be young, but it’s never too early or too lateto start with your imaginations.
I enjoy talking to people. I enjoy watching nature. It might be unbelievable, but I am also a person who listens to different words of wisdom. I am not a top student, heck I am even part of the naughty students. But does that mean that I could not right short stories?It simply means that everyone is capable of writing. It’s about time to start my own.
