Snap Stories

by Lorraine Bartlett / Lorna Barrett / L.L. Bartlett


A friend of mine is getting into Snap Stories.

"What the heck is that?" I asked.

A short story based on a snapshot, and less than a page long.  Maybe 250-500 words.

Well, I've always struggled to write LONG so a snap story should be easy, right?

WRONG.

I tried to write one and found I wanted to add a LOT more detail. I wanted more rich description. I wanted character motivation.  Maybe I'm just destined to write stories that are 2,000-80,000 words in length.

Would you like to read these kinds of stories as a freebie on a website or blog?

Here's a photo I took  What do you think the story should be about?
