By short story, we mean SHORT story: 4,000 to 5,000 words. It's a great way to practice all the elements of writing -- character, description, plot, pacing, voice, etc. -- in one small package. Plus, you get the satisfaction of completing something.
And what does BSFW get? More short stories to critique! It's a win win win win.
We're not just leading you to the starting line and saying "go!" Start here, with this fantastic podcast episode on short story writing. You don't have to subscribe to the "Writing Excuses" podcast to listen, but we hope once you've heard this one, you'll be hooked on this amazing resource for writing advice.
We can keep each other appraised of our progress on our Facebook page.
Also, don't forget the BSFW Daily Writing Challenge! It's a worksheet on Google Drive that gives you points for writing at least 250 words each day. And who doesn't love points? Click here to email Brad to get started if you haven't yet. The June spreasheet will be ready by the end of the week.
Let's write some short stories! Who's in?
