A story needs to feel long
Even when it’s only a few minutes.
I don’t know how else to explain a good story.
The good ones always feel longer than they actually are.
The shorter a story is,
The less it feels like it is long…
It could be 500 pages, and still feel short
It’s not very good.
I’ve seen it in modern movies that
There is more action than story.
But it’s not so simple as that.
A good story connects well
It moves from sequence to sequence
Making sense in existential structure.
That is a term meaning something’s coherency
When time is being explained.
As, a story is just writing with time woven through its element.
You want to make a story that feels long
And connects from point A to point B
Logically, and sequentially.
It’s what makes a good story.
The longer the story feels;—
Even if it’s only a couple hundred words—
The better the story often is.
Because it can, as a matter of fact
Connect well with its audiences,
And bring them coherent ideas
In a structure of time.
That is called “Existential Structure.”
Modern movies suck for this reason
That the structure of the stories don’t make sense.
There is no moral, there is only plot.
No thematic elements.
The story moves, borrowing new archetypal materials
From previously established fictions.
It assumes we’ve already watched the hours worth of material
Needed to understand the plots fully.
This is why people enjoy Television more.
It works slower,
Connects plot points slower.
Television plots out points over several episodes
Making it more enjoyable to watch.
With reading, it is doubly important.
Because with reading, one must follow the event patterns
Of rise, fall, rise, fall, climax.
This simple structure builds the most enjoyable stories.
However, better than that are slices of life
Where there is only the story of life…
A reader has to be cultured to dare it.
Many people do not understand the enjoyable nature of a story
That is about life in her complexities.
Complexities, simple day to day life is healthy.
War and Peace, Anna Karenina, Pride and Prejudice,
These stories are ones filled with ideas about life.
It’s interesting. Especially to pleasantly reverie among
The author’s moral suppositions
But our modern readers find it boring because they do not agree with the morals.
Often, the morals prove themselves accurate.
As, it is really the moral of a story that makes it feel long or short.
A good moral can create constancy among the whole work of art
Fusing it together with sensibility,
And well thought out patterns.
It is unhindered, uncensored,
Yet, the ramifications prove themselves true.
Funny thing, is that most families remind me of Anna’s family
In Anna Karenina.
It offends the atheist not because it is “False”
But because it reflects back at them something unflattering about themselves.
The truth that the moral situation caused by divorce
Resembles that of Anna’s and her superficial entourage.
It becomes clear that in the household of divorcees
There is a falsehood being lived out
And it attracts strange individuals
A good moral does this,
Where it is held true because it is true.
The disagreement is that it offends.
But, without that offensive thing we call a moral
The tales we spin are nothing more than schizophrenic messes
Never making heads or tails…
It becomes incomprehensible.
Which is another proof of moral,
How when we have bad ones,
The story seems to dishevel itself because it had not entered through by the gatekeeper.
It feels shorter.
