Studying Stories

I’ve been reading quite a variety of short stories lately. Some I really enjoy, others I wonder why they were written. The stories I’ve been reading have made me think about what makes a good short story and what I like and want in a story. So I enjoyed the creative writing workshop our local writers’ group hosted yesterday. Our invited tutor, Moyra Donaldson (http://moyradonaldson.blogspot.com) examined the necessary elements for a successful short story as well as other topics during the session.

It was a very informative and encouraging day. And just the beginning of an exciting week. Now I have to start swotting for Quiz Night on Thursday…More details are posted on Fermanagh Creative Writing Groups’ website: http://fcwg.wordpress.com/2011/09/04/moyra-donaldson-kicks-off-creative-week/
