￼I wasn’t familiar with the short story world up until the moment I started my studies.
I acquired my bachelor’s degree in English Language and Literature in 2018 and I really got to learn a lot about storytelling.
I used to think that in order to express your self and to convey meaning and hidden messages you had to explore your topic in a book, a play or even a poem with a little imagination.
I read stories by Jackson, Bradbury and Kureishi. I let my imagination fill in the blanks just like I did in poetry and I got to explore places that I haven’t visited before.
Many people don’t count short stories in their yearly reads and only include them when they are part of a collection. However, since I feel so many thing while reading short stories, it would be like cheating if I didn’t include them in my GoodReads books.
