I am gonna write a short story today, and I’ve been trying to find a way to make it awesome.
See, I’m not a short-fiction kinda guy, for the most part, but I’ve done a few. This will be a sequel to one of my existing stories, though I’m still not 100% positive which one to work on.
Whatever I choose, I will most likely be working with Lester Dent’s pulp story plot formula as a basis. That’s the creator of Doc Savage’s formula for exciting fiction from back in the 1950’s and before. By its nature it suggests murders, so that is interesting. I’ve never really done a murder mystery, so that’s another good reason to use that element.
The pace of writing a short story is often fairly rapid for me, so let’s see what happens. I’ll update you on how this goes once I’ve hammered out a rough draft.
That’s all for now.
Thanks for reading.
