You’ve written a story, or maybe you have an outline of one, and perhaps you fear it’s too simple, too blunt in its storytelling. Is it worth sharing with the world, you ask yourself?
I’m here to tell you that it absolutely might be. Some of the best writings speak of complex and multifaceted conflicts that are presented using simple, straightforward approaches. Not everything has to be a jumble of greatness. Maybe that’s just not your style. It sure as hell isn’t mine. The concept to keep in mind is that your story has to have a conflict, and it must be presented effectively.
Simple and sophisticated, each has its individual charm. Don’t be disheartened if your novel or short story is direct in its approach to deliver its plot. Even authors of grand, complicated stories struggle to deliver those stories in a manner that makes sense rather than over-complicates things.
No matter which side of the spectrum you’re on, work with what you have. Only you can make your story great – just make it the best it can be and make sure it has appeal to your target audience.
