I have a tendency to lurk, but am working on that. Found this place through a blog and decided to check it out. I’ve also finally decided to make writing a priority and am slowly finishing a project. Which is exciting, as I have finished only one story and it was pretty bad.
I am also learning how to write short stories, but am not sure of the process. Most of my ideas tend to be for novels.November 20, 2012 at 12:41 am #208838jhmcmullenParticipant
Welcome! Glad you found it. Hope it’s useful. Everything’s a little quiet from NaNoWriMo, but it’s normally a friendly bunch.
Great at theory, terrible at practice.November 20, 2012 at 1:34 am #208839Magic SeekerModerator
Hi cafegirl! Welcome to FM!
I tend to lurk, too. :silly: You are more than welcome to comment, though. We’re a friendly group.
We have classes, and occasionally I see one for short story writing.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

Cool and thank you. I’ll check it out.November 20, 2012 at 4:23 am #208848MaripatParticipant
Hello there. I’m glad you came out of lurking to say hello. The others are right, we’re quiet here this month with the American holidays and NaNo going on. Have a look around and be sure to check out the chat rooms, Too. If you have any questions, please ask.

Welcome to FM! You came to a great place to learn and push you towards more writing. One way is with prompts, challenges, and dares. Like anything else, you get better by practicing. Every May we have a month-long challenge for short stories with various levels to aim for called “Story A Day” (Only the top level is a true story a day).
I think we also have some articles about short stories in “Vision: A Resource for Writers,” which is a free emagazine with over 10 years worth of articles in it. The link is under the link in the header “Weblogs and More.”
