Everyday story


The difference of this genre from the genre information “mini-stories” is the fullness, richness “sweep” of their respective parties, the language of imagery, visualization. Similarly, the type of text in the literature corresponds to the story. Publications of this type often appear in the pages of the popular Western periodicals (for example, the world-famous magazine for family reading “Reader’s Digest”), and therefore adequately investigated. In everyday stories, describe some episodes from the life of people, their behavior, and the different situations of conflict, i.e., all that can be designated as a “human being.” Everyday stories are created by artistic method, i.e., a major role in the birth of the author of such texts is playing fantasy. It was she who gives birth did not exist in reality the situation or “handles” that took place in the real world, bringing the “raw material” to the real opportunities in a particular case, the artistic level (in terms of improved imagery, sharpness contained in collision materials, unexpected turns of events in the development of the display and so on.).

However, in contrast to the actual works of art of everyday stories, which write the journalists tend to have a more down to earth, close to the documentary nature of the representation of reality, sketchy in plot development, inherent in the use of speech language newspaper dies, well-established stylistic turns.

A certain intimacy of everyday stories in this regard to the journalistic genre publications other groups (e.g. correspondence) still does not stop just take it to the artistic and journalistic genres. This classification is justified primarily by the authors using such stories as the main instrument of creating a work of art method of representation of reality.
