What makes a good short story? How are short story elements different from feature-length works? Where does act one, act two, act three, character arc… come into play when you only have your audience for a few pages? Are short stories centered around conveying a single experience that has a few twists and surprises?
These are all questions I had when I set out to study short story structure. Although I’m still in the process of finding answers to all of the above, in March, I’ll be blogging about a few findings relating to short story structure. I’ll end the month with an introduction for my theme for the A to Z Challenge.
Below is a schedule for March posts.
- March 11th – Crafting Short Story Openings
