This is how….

From the not so common short story of the “Girl” by Jamaica Kincaid I find out that there are some stories that can be told without having a plot, no setting, no narrator, and with not particular point of view. Just telling what you want to say could also become a short story that will not have all the rules on how to made a story but the other person will no what is about. Where in the story “Girl” I could clearly see that it was talking about a person that believe she/he knows everything about life and want it to tell his/her child how things are done and how to do it. Because everything is done the same way or end up the same way like Margaret Atwood “Happy Endings”. Where she base all her different happy endings with the first one where they life happily and die at the end. Showing a dark but pleasant kind of happy endings, at the same time saying that all endings are the same no matter how they start……..

One thought on “This is how….

  1. To me, an ending to a story will always end with either happiness, sad or anger. There will never be a fair ending for the rest of us. I do agree that most endings would just be the same. A type an ending you will expect as soon you start reading. The story of my life ended happily I suppose…However, and an ending is an ending.
