This Letter to an MFA is a very interesting little treatise on creating a story. It’s short, too. Check it out.
Both links above are from here. You’re welcome.
And, because I know you’re all dying to know, I received my notes on the book three proposal today. They’re good, too, and not at all what I was expecting. I can’t respond to them here, though, so I have a lot to do tonight.
