The Almost Story.
McDonald, Walter R.
This paper describes the almost story as a story that overwhelms the author but does not wholly come across to the reader. It is a story that simultaneously excites and disappoints, intrigues and frustrates. Several teaching suggestions for helping students turn an almost story into a story are given, including encouraging students to experiment with character, to refeel the vision of the story, and to carefully revise the plot of the story.
