If you google "Tomorrow's Bird" you will find a link to a short story I recently read. (I'd post the link here but I think there are rules against that?) It's a short read, but while I enjoyed it, I decided I couldn't find any actual conflict within the story itself. It's written as a sort of marketing campaign, as a satire. I almost feel like it would do better as a humorous essay than a short story, but that's not what it has been categorized as. So, I'm not trying to turn this into a discussion of that story, but it is drilled into our heads that a story needs conflict (and I completely agree), but here is something I've read that, at least to me, works without any conflict whatsoever. And I wanted some other's thoughts.
