For two weeks (hey, we’re half-way through!!!), I’ll be away from the “blogging desk” and focused on writing fiction. While I’m gone, I’m resurrecting some of the “oldies but goodies” from the last couple years. Fourteen blog entries that were among the most popular, along with a brief introduction.
Here’s today’s entry:
One of the most frequent questions a writer gets, especially from non-writers, is this: Where do your stories come from?
With this post, I attempt to answer that question. The Way a Story Begins.
NOTE: Starting tomorrow I’ll be re-capping some of the MFA-related posts from the last two years.
Thanks for being a reader. I’ll return to all-new content on May 15th, or soon after.
Until then, if you are interested in reading some of my short fiction, please visit my “portfolio” page of my website and read a short story, or four, published during the past year, including Most Dead Birds Are Never Found, Dudley’s Sacrifice, Solomon’s Ditch, and Cop-Cop Cop.
