not where

Are these sentences correct:

1) He was supposed to write a short story, but not like this, not where one has to know a lot of history to understand what the story is about.

2) You're supposed to write a short story, but not a complicated one, not where the writer has to be an expert in history.

If they are, what does 'where' refer to in them?

Gratefully,
Navi
