Stuffed with all-new prompts—including material from my StoryADay Live workshops on story structure and conflict—and headed up by a section that shares road-tested tips for surviving a month of short story writing!
And now, on to this week’s prompt.
Steal a title from a novel or song
- You can tell the story of the song, in short story form
- You can write a completely different story, taking the title and coming up with something fresh.
- Don’t simply retell the story of someone else’s novel (that’s theft!)
