30: David Farland on Short Story Writing

        David Farland on Short Story Writing 

     Tonight for the first call of the 2013 edition of Farland's Authors' Advisory, our sponsor David Farland spoke with us at length about the art of short story writing.  David took us step-by-step from the "Eureka!" elation of  that  first idea, through discussions of  evocative language to propel your reader into the world you've created for them, to what makes a "good"  ending. He also talked about why the so called: "Twilight Zone" ending is best left there.

     If you love a well-constructed short story and have always wanted to know how to write one well, press "Play".
