I think it is pretty easy, even as a true story. Pick your story, and try Intro, Complication, Try, Resolution. One or two sentences each. Here are two 80 word solutions.
When I was ten, my allowance was three dollars a week. It didn't go far. One day, I saw the house on the corner had a yard full of leaves. I knocked on the door, and told Mister Jacobs I'd rake his yard for three dollars. If he had a rake. And bags. He did. He came out to help me bag the leaves! I raked four yards that day, and had fifteen dollars: First time I ever felt rich.
We have to get up too early to catch the bus, and go to classes all day, and then take the bus home. By then we have worked nine hours, and then we have to do an hour of chores at home and then do two hours of homework with no help! Children shouldn't have to work twelve hours every day. Practice problems should be done in school where we can get help from a teacher. Homework should be banned.
These are examples, so you can see the structure, even in 80 words.
In the first; Fact. Problem. Opportunity. Proposal. Success. Victorious Conclusion.
In the 2nd, two sentences outline the existing time suck on kids. The harm caused by the problem (children shouldn't have to work that hard). How it could be done differently and better (in class with a teacher's help). The Conclusion (Homework should be banned).
