About This Class

This course is not just about writing.  It is about finishing what you start.

In this class, I'll share with you my six-step process for writing short stories.  I'll not only tell you about the steps, but I'll show you how I do them. 

During this class, I'll write a short story from scratch in front of you in real-time.  You'll get to watch my screen as I explore, and I'll talk you through what I'm thinking to give the most complete picture of the process.

What you’ll learn

  • How to write and FINISH a short story.

Are there any course requirements or prerequisites?

  • Students need to have read one short story in their life.

Who this course is for:

  • Writers.
  • Aspiring writers.
  • Pleasure writers.
  • Professional writers.
