Short & To the Point

Today MG Braden and I are giving a workshop :: Short & To the Point - Writing Short Stories & Why You’d Want To

We missed the deadline for having the handouts printed, so I'm posting the stuff here...might not make the most sense to everyone...


Two by two, the church filled up like the loading of the Ark. Karen Finn turned in her church pew and stared at the wedding program. Just where was her matching zebra, hmm? Someone who’d made it past thirty without finding that other half. (THE PERFECT STRANGER, Dreams & Desires 3)

We know where she is (church), why she’s there (wedding), how she feels about it (yearning), and that she’s young (relatively) and funny. And we know it in 40 words.
