This Is A Love Story
This is a love story. Which means, for our purposes: two people, young, one male and one female, meet. Each thinks a lot about the other, each tries to be loved, and is for a time. And then, because no matter what, the love story comes to an end. After a few drinks (500 words), a few plot twists (short story), a failed marriage (novella) or after (700 pages, shifting point-of-view, confusing motivations, meandering storyline) 2 children, jobs then other jobs, a dog who runs away, a teenager who runs away, a house with a mortgage, finally paid, ecstasy and grief, a serious illness and then a more serious illness from which there is no recovery. The end.
