Sometimes a story is right on the surface of the words: a story of a bank robbery is just that and nothing more. However, a story could also be about something underneath the main story. For example, a story of a boy doing his homework could really be about his stress at living in a high crime neighborhood (I’ll post this story next week). The subtext in this type of story is more important than the surface story.
Story Prompt: October 3, 2022
Write a story where the real story is only hinted at in the words.
If you’re not sure how to do this, look up examples of subtext online to get some ideas.
