This is an exercise in story writing based on a simple short story with commentary along the way. The objective is to help you think about how a short story is put together but to also think about how you would improve this story, particularly the ending. There are three “sections” to the story, each of which ends at a point where a story might end. Hopefully if you are a writer, all of this will help you understand the process of short story writing. If you are a reader, it might help you understand what you are reading.
