What I Learned from Writing a Short Story

Wrote a new short story!

Just for fun, I sidetracked a little this month and explored a new idea. This was one of those things that you have to try, just to see if it works. So I banged out a nearly 8,000-word story by the seat of my pants (never done that before!) polished it, and posted it to WattPad.com.

It was fun writing a story from scratch, no outline, no plan. I had to meet the characters as I wrote them, and to my surprise, they were fleshed-out from the very beginning. Doesn't always turn out that way, believe me.
