How to Write better Short StoriesWriting better short stories
Writing better short stories and publishing them in Lit Mags
Only a few mornings ago I released an entry on Writer Unboxed entitled How to Get Your Short Stories Published Infl. Mom. Several commentators said that they booked the item as a bookmark in case they had a sophisticated short novel they wanted to publish in the illuminated magazine universe.
Some were thankful for the little boost they needed to start typing or submission. Also, if you're not interested in short stories because you think you're a novel writer (or an up-and-coming one), you should see my What Novellists Should Know About Short Fiction in it. Here are a few write tools you will find helpful:
If you are just starting to write short stories or are already publishing, but want to know how to write better, more informative stories, you need to take the The Story Intensive course by Sarah Selecky (which is available every autumn): Story Intensive is an on-line short game programme focusing on the creation of new short stories.
This four-months programme provides the framework, the response, the dates and the responsibility that a self-controlled write programme cannot have. If you have trouble typing on your own, this is for you. This will help you understand that your letter is important and it makes your letter a topicality. Story Intensive is structured like a term of a conventional MFA-creativity programme (really, it's so strict!), with a dedicated instructor and six to eight schoolmates.
You have the option of (a) a FREE review of a font or (b) FREE editing of a font (up to 2500 words). FREE copy of my short novel "Perfect", which was released in Grist: This is the Journal for Writers and is not available anyplace. Well, if I had to pick a favorite from my stories, this is it.
He has authored some very successful works such as Sherman Alexie, Elizabeth Gilbert and Bret Anthony Johnston. Well, if The History Intensive isn't for you, then an alternate Sarah Selecky's self-made Stories Is a State of Mind course, which I totally like. You can also get the above mentioned bonus by buying the course through one of the link in my reviews of Stories Is a State of Mind.
There' s a short history somewhere inside you that itches to be spelled.
