The best assorted short stories are those which are other than funny, scary or true. Here, young writers can focus on stories about their best friend, a lovable pet, a memorable trip or vacation, a birthday party or any special activity that they enjoy or perform well.

If you do a great writing job your story might get its own web page.

Pictures add a very unique touch to this section. You can upload up to four images that really tie the story together. These picture should be meaningful or at least enhance the story somewhat.

If the story is about people or places, finding pictures should be pretty easy to do. You should always check with mom or dad to see of you should post the picture at all.
