If stories were written on rolodexes what would they be? What is a beginning and an ending, then?
If stories were written on walls, in the round, what would they be? What is a beginning and an ending then?
If pages dissolved as you read them, so you couldn’t go back, what would they become?
Why don’t stories have choruses, like songs?
Why does music (and dance, and sport, and poetry) allow literal repetition, but writing not?
stories have description, argumentation, narration, and exposition. Well perhaps not argumentation. Only one of these progresses the action, so could you have a story that was only description? or only exposition? (we have songs, poems and so on that do this…)
if this is not a story, does that matter (what is wrong with making films that are descriptions, or expositions?, where does the bias for story come from? Why?
is story the great coloniser of us? (We are its vehciles, not the other way round?)
