Write Your Best Short Story

Write Your Best Short Story

I want to be a published novelist. I’ve been working toward this goal for decades.

But I’ve decided to modify my long-form strategy and work on short stories as well.

Why?

  1. Because the skill and discipline of writing a complete story in as few words as necessary will carry over to the writing of a more complex story.
  2. Because it takes less time to write a few short stories than to write one novel.
  3. Because authors who get stories published in literary journals have a track record to show to agents and publishers.writing-helloquence
