  Story: the Gackt Fan Website
I apologize; Roujin and I had another discussion about Story's future, and she has a new announcement that she will be making about the site later tonight.
It's been over three years since our last update to Story, and Roujin and I have realized that free time is too rare for both of us these days for us to keep running the site effectively.
We simply don't have the extra time or energy to continue working on Story anymore, and, regretfully, we are planning to shut down the site by the end of this year.

  Short story - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Short stories tend to be more concise and to the point than longer works of fiction, such as novellas (in the modern sense of this term) and novels.
Both of these books are composed of individual short stories (which range from farce or humorous anecdotes to well-crafted literary fictions) set within a larger narrative story (a frame story), although the frame tale device was not adopted by all writers.
Short stories are most often a form of fiction writing, with the most widely published form of short stories being genre fiction such as science fiction, horror fiction, detective fiction, and so on.

 2blowhards.com: Story
In this view, story is the clothesline you hang your artistry on; further, the "art" in a given work is to be found in deploying the artistry, not in creating the clothesline.
The back-and-forth between story and character -- between the way story elaborates (and frames) character, and the way character propels (and informs) story -- is a big part of the never-ending fascination of the narrative approach.
The difference was that the story and characters were compelling for me (well, about 98% of the time), and Wallace's obsession with his diction, syntax, punctuation, and structure rarely distracted me from the story in a way I felt harmful.

 The Emperor's New Hump
That the story hadn’t gotten more serious treatment in the mainstream press was largely thanks to a well-organized media effort by the Bush White House and the Bush/Cheney campaign to label those who attempted to investigate the bulge as "conspiracy buffs" (Washington Post, 10/9/04).
An indication of the seriousness with which the story was being pursued is provided by an email Schwartz sent to Nelson on October 26—one of a string of back-and-forth emails between Schwartz and Nelson.
