Here is an example of this kind of story, “Probably, I’ll Marry You” <READ IT HERE
from my new flash collection Alligators At Night. When you read “Probably, I’ll Marry You”, keep in mind that without unusual character details, we’d never see the kind of romantic dilemma the main character is in! See if you can show the reader how a character’s quirks can create and define the dramatic tension in this story.
fyi I was very excited to find out that “Probably, I’ll Marry You” was recently nominated by Ilanot Review for Best of the Web!
