Switching Gears: Fiction


Many thanks to the participants who came out last week! In response their request, we will be switching gears and focusing on fiction and poetry for the coming weeks. So, bring your stories and your poems to share, or get ready to write some. 🙂

For today, we will be focusing on the short story, specifically looking at master mystery writer Lester Dent‘s formula for writing one.  Although Dent was known for writing horror, adventure, and science fiction stories, his method of storytelling is applicable to all genres.   Today, we will begin using his formula for writing a 6,000-word short story.

Please, visit the following link to learn more:  Lester Dent’s Short Story Master Formula by Karen Woodward.

Remember, if you are in the area and would like to participate, we meet at the Poinciana Library at 5:00 PM every Tuesday!

Happy Writing!
