As we warm up for StoryADay May 2023, it’s always useful to read great examples of the kind of short fiction we might end up writing during May.
Here are three great (and a little weird) stories I’ve read over the past few months, to inspire you.
- Vagabond Mannequin by K. B. Carle http://stada.me/vagabond
- Help Me Follow My Sister Into The Land of the Dead by Carmen Maria Machado http://stada.me/followmysister
- Unknown Number by Blue Neustifer http://stada.me/unknownnumber
If you’ve ever thought “I can’t write a whole a short story,” maybe it’s because you haven’t seen all the weird and wonderful ways a short story can be built. It’s almost impossible to get it wrong!
P. S. The free WRITER Code Masterclass is underway. If you want to write, but keep getting derailed, watch Lesson 1 now: in which I present a framework for a writing life that works for you, today, not ‘some day’.
