Plot Genie: Short-Short Story
Supplemental Formula #6
by Wycliffe A. Hill
Writing / Educational Aid

The “Short-Short Story” was popularized in magazines of the era like Collier’s, which squeezed short stories to a single page. Designed for light entertainment and fast reading, this form of story-telling is becoming more popular as reader’s attention spans are divided between an ever-increasing information overload.

Use this Plot Genie supplement to tell the basics—brisk plots, fast characterizations, an economy of words. Get in, get out—that’s the modern way, and satisfying readers is the Plot Genie way!

* This Plot Genie supplemental formula is unique since it actually includes fiction -- actual "short-short stories" from magazines like Collier's and Liberty, as examples of the form.

New York Herald Tribune reporter Jimmy Race (Dana Andrews, The Best Years of Our Lives, Laura) is sent to Budapest by his editor, Nick Strang (George Sanders, All About Eve, Rebecca), to help colleague Jeanne Moray (Marta Toren, Sirocco) investigate a rumored plot to overthrow Hungary's Communist dictatorship.
