    a happy book from start to finish might be the most difficult genre there is
    The only one who can heal you is you.

    Light-hearted? Yes. How would I label it? Seussian
    I would read it anywhere, Sam-I-Am
    Yeah that was Sam-I-AM...lol! The eternal optimist! His friend looked pretty angry though... "Not in a car Sam, let me be!"

    Cat in a Hat. "So all we could do was Sit! Sit! Sit! Sit! Sit! And we did not like it. One little bit."

    Light-hearted? That's debatable.

    Agree! More likely found in children's books. Although I'm sure it could be done for adults. But if your theory is correct, then they would be unhappy when it was finished.

    More light-hearted than "See Spot. See Dick. See Spot chase Dick. Run, Spot, run! See Spot bite Dick!"

    Apparently it peaked in 2010. It seems that anything horror-related will always survive with younger readers. I guess it's all part of discovering life. I wonder if there are other stories that are distributed this way that aren't horror.

    It makes me think of using social media in conjuction with the written word. A sort of timed story that comes with photos and videos. It seems that social media has taken a huge chunk of our reading time, so we should be finding ways to use it more. Do you know if there are authors doing something with social media that goes beyond just marketing their books?
    I read some Creepypasta, and wow, I was really convinced they were true. The most beautiful one I have read is called "the Russian sleep experiment" seems like a 100% true story


    i try to write something next month. It is a great challenge!

    I'm on a couple of servers on discord but haven't seen anything like this. Can you recommend any that fit the bill?

It sounds like your concept would need a platform, like a TikTok type thing. I guess someone would have to create the app, and then find a way to make it user generated. So anyone could set up a story as long as they have an account and follow the rules. I thought I saw something like this described in another post, but I can't remember where. Maybe that person will chime in.
    I'm working on it ... always working on it ...

    very short story in happy from start to finish genre....

    waking up Taylor pushed the fluffy clouds to one side and smiled as the rainbows made the shape of an arch to walk through to get to the fountain of youth to clean the glitter and crystal flakes that always fall while sleeping and dreaming of just another day to add to a wonderful life full of joy and happiness. Later that day after eating marshmellow and pixie dust cereal from the golden bowl of life the day spread itself out into a burst of starlight and shooting stars to accompany a walk through paradise. Afrer another smashing day of laughter and pure thoughts it was time for sleeps time just before the nice person brought those favourite sweets medications and another perfect sleepy time.

    That sounds really intriguing, and ideas come to mind. Can you elaborate about what you had in mind?
