  1. I just recently got back into writing short stories… I hadn’t written any since I was in grad school for my MFA in fiction writing! But I’ve completed two this year, and still need to go back and edit them with fresh eyes. Thanks for sharing these resources!

  2. Nice collection of resources. I have to admit: I haven’t written a short story in a while, mostly because I feel I need a really good idea to put one together. I guess I should get back to it.


  3. I love writing short stories – culling all of the fluff and getting right into the action can be so refreshing after writing novels

  4. Thanks for a great post.
    I’m on my way to read ‘Short Training for Your Long Game: How Writing Short Stories Can Help You Hone Your Novel-Writing Skills’. I have never been able to write short stories but am really interested in how they can help with my fantasy novels.
    Sent to you from A-Z

  5. I really enjoy short stories, both reading them and writing them. I saw this quote once from Stephen King which said that a short story was like a kiss in the dark from a stranger. I love that.


    • Love the quote. I have not heard that one so I went browsing. Here’s the full quote, “A short story is a different thing altogether – a short story is like a quick kiss in the dark from a stranger.”
