‘Story’ is a description of some inter-related course of events that usually has a meaningful (happy or tragic) end. ‘Novel’ is different from ‘story’ in that it is not just description of ‘events’ because it also describes the details of environment plus the feelings, emotions and thinking of various characters. A good novel makes us feel that we are also a part of that environment. Some novels may not have any end. Story of novel proceeds slowly due to its details about environment etc.

Also see some relations and differences between Novel and Drama on this post.

    What about poetic plays of Shakespeare and its esoteric dimension?
    A Novel can also be about a single central character, who domintes the story; have you read Ivan the fool, Anna karein?

    To improve one’s writings, which are ‘intellectual’ (as per the definition of Babar Sahb), then one should learn when to reject a criticism and when to accept it. If they are approving, reject them; and accept only if they are disappointing to you.

  9. Thanks for your tips on this blog. Just one thing I would
    want to say is the fact purchasing consumer electronics items over the Internet is not new.
    The truth is, in the past 10 years alone, the market for online consumer electronics has grown noticeably.

    Today, you can find practically just about any electronic gadget and product on
    the Internet, from cameras as well as camcorders to computer elements and gambling consoles.

  10. This article containing the information I need to know.. thank you. Keep up the good work..
