Wouldn’t it be cool if you had all your favourite short story writing advice in one place so you can just Write the Crap Out of It?

During 2017 I wrote a series of blog posts about the art of short story writing. My intention was to create a body of work, that was arranged by topic for improving and troubleshooting your short stories that would be easy to use and access. But my, and I’m sure your challenge is, as with anything on the internet, well, the internet.

I get sucked into websites and down wormholes of useless data. (According to my last internet challenge I would most likely be Ursula the Sea Witch if I were a Disney villain.)

The internet steals writing time, but how do we avoid it when the articles we are looking for are internet-based? To combat the never-ending series of related links, I created an eBook out of all the short story craft posts I wrote. The eBook is called Write the Crap Out of It. It does not just contain the blogposts, I included practical exercises for you to do at the end of each section to implement the advice and to get you writing.

And, wait for it, you can post those exercise on www.deadlinesforwriters.com and give receive feedback on your exercises.

So, download the book and write the crap out of it.
