Three definitions of what stories and/or narratives are

1. ERSKINE CALDWELL
           1982

“Southern writers must have learned the art of storytelling from listening to oral tales. I did. It gave me the knowledge that the simplest incident can make a story."

2. LORRIE MOORE
           2001

“A novel is a daily labor over a period of years. But a story can be like a mad, lovely visitor, with whom you spend a rather exciting weekend.”

3.EUDORA WELTY
1972

“Once you're into a story everything seems to apply—what you overhear on a city bus is exactly what your character would say on the page you're writing. Wherever you go, you meet part of your story .”
