I thought the short story assignments were fairly easy. I already had some ideas, like any story, it needs a beginning, middle and end. All I needed to do was to fill in the gaps. Starting from Short Story #2 involved a bit of what was happening in Journal 6, as is what most of the work assignments have been based on about actually. It wasn’t hard basing these on true events albeit just not including some details deemed not necessary. I did not exaggerate any details, though it might’ve been better if I had to dramatize the story a bit more to make it a lot less a memoir and more a fictional story. But as I learned from the quote “the best lies have an element of truth to them”.
