How to Write a Great Short Story: A Beginner’s Guide

 

 

How to Write a Great Short Story: A Beginner’s Guide is a basic guide for beginning writers. Students, novice writers, and anyone wanting to brush up on their writing skills will find this guide useful. It contains many suggestions for how to write a short story; however, much of the information in this book can be used by anyone at any skill level in writing.

There is no magic formula to writing a great short story although there are some techniques that can be used to help you get started.

The secret to writing a great short story is…in a word…practice. You must write, rewrite, and rewrite again until you whittle down the story to only the essential words that are needed to tell a great story effectively.

 

Miss Carmelia Faye Lafayette: A Short Story

Buford Tee’s love interest, Miss Carmelia Faye Lafayette, is a tough-as-nails owner of an early 1900’s barrelhouse-turned-sophisticated juke joint called The Hankering. She gives Buford Tee a hard time when he tries to make a play for her affections shortly after the death of her abusive husband . . . uh, ex-husband, that is. Well, she ain’t having it. She doesn’t want a man that’s only after her . . . (you know what). And she lets him know it in no uncertain terms.
