Why are short stories so important? For writers, it’s because writing a short story is how we practice. It’s how we test ourselves and push our imaginations to the very limit. Novels are great for some things, but it’s easy to let your characters fall into worn-out roles. In short stories, your characters are constantly tested due to word limitation and it’s some of the best practice in the world. Not to mention, if you think that writing a story in 100,000 words is hard, try to put that same story in 1,000!

In this course, I will not only cover some of the basics of writing (including common pitfalls) but I will also break down a short story into its parts and explain them. At the end of this course, you will have a firm grasp of a short story and how to write one.
