Plotting a Short Story

Hello folks,

I’m preparing to rework the first draft of my newest short story and I’ve decided to try something a little different. I’m going to use a loose plot structure on my story. This is new to me because I’ve never used a set plotting structure or formula for a short story. It’s not needed, but when I saw this one I decided it actually makes sense, so I’ll give it a go. Below is a screenshot of the basic idea so you can try it too, if you want. Continue reading “Plotting a Short Story”

Get Paid To Write

So you’re a writer and you would like to get paid for your work…

If you are a writer I’m assuming you would like to get paid for your writing. Unless I’m mistaken and you love working for free, then you’re in the wrong place. But, I bet you would like some monetary compensation for the hundreds, thousands, and millions of words you put down on the page.

I don’t believe any writer should publish their work for free unless it is by choice for the purpose of a nonprofit or other good intention, such as a blog post about something you or someone you know is going through. Just don’t do it! Promotional material aside, you deserve to get paid for your writing. At least taking into consideration that you have put in as much effort as possible to make the writing beautiful. Laziness is not acceptable if you want to get paid to write.

Lets commence with the purpose of this post…
