I finished the first draft of a short story last week. For some people, that’s no big deal, but for me, it’s actually a first. The last time I started into the craft of writing, I tried my hand at a novel length work, but I didn’t finish. This time I decided to do something shorter so I could start and finish and see the entire process. Step one is now complete, and after giving it a short break, I will go back and look at revising.
The story itself covers a character that I intend to put into a novel that I am planning to write as part of my writing course. It’s not planned to be a main character, but who knows; I kind of like the guy, so his role will certainly be more prominent than I originally thought.
During my break I plan to try my hand as some 500 word Flash Fiction. Let me know if it’s something you are interested in reading, and/or if you want a link to a great free course where you can learn a process for such thing!
Make it a great day!
