Looking for some wonderful short stories to read? Check out Twenty Great American Short Stories. Many of these short stories I have read, but a few I haven’t. I will make time to read those I haven’t read.
When I began writing short stories, I read many of these short stories to gain an understanding of how to construct a short story. I also read many articles and books on writing short stories. You can read many of my short stories here.
Also if you are planning to write your own short story, I have written an ebook on the process of constructing a short story. It works well for beginning authors, high school students, and college students. Check out my ebook How to Write a Great Short Story: A Beginner’s Guide available at Amazon.
