Beginning, Middle and End, thatís what I was told was the makeup of a good story.
Hereís a beginning Ė A Blog, my first, if thatís what this is, perhaps maybe just a rant? I prefer it to be a blog, new trendy, seeing as Iíve not blogged before. Rant, well we all rant. On and on, rant, rant, rant. Remember Monty Python, wow, could they rant. Rant, rant, rant, rant. Rant, rant, rant, rant. Raaant . . . rantaty rant.
Any way not to get carried away, this a blog.
Where was I . . . yes, beginning middle and end, the making of a good story.
Consider this short story.
Once upon a time, they all lived happy ever after.
A beginning, a middle and an end, or is there?
Is there a middle, is the fact that Ďthey all livedí a middle?
The story makes sense, itís complete, but to me it consists of a beginning and an end. ĎOnce upon a time,í the beginning. ĎThey all lived happy ever after,í is that not the end of a good story?
I know not many stories end that way these days, but they used to!
And any way Iím ranting . . . opps, blogging.
No! I think Iím ranting now. Blogging is much different to ranting donít you think?
So, if once upon a time they all lived happy ever after; Iím using a sentence here as a statement rather than a quote from the story if you follow; we have to ask, how do they live now?
And the answer lies in blogging.
Because once upon a time we used to rant, like Iím doing now. Only now we blog, like what this is.
Whatís in the middle is the fact that we live.
And weíll go on blogging happy ever after . . . maybe?
As that depends on how we write . . . the end.

I think you have the beginning and middle:

Once upon a time (beginning)
they all lived happily (middle)

but they all died in the end. (end)

I think that works, what-a-ya-say?

Interesting piece.
