9781499373233: The Easy Way to Write Short Stories That Sell (Volume 1)

If you've ever felt that you had a story inside you - and wanted to know how to write and get it published, this book is for you. This book is intended for amateur and professional writers who may have lost their way. It guarantees inspiration, motivation, effective ways to counter writer's block and provides you with easy, step by step instructions on how to write a short story that will sell. Rob Parnell is the respected author of 28 books on writing. Over the last eleven years Rob has taught over 100,000 students and subscribers from all over the world. His website, The Easy Way to Write, is considered one of the best writer's sites online. In The Easy Way to Write Short Stories That Sell, Rob Parnell explains how the first and best way to progress in a writing career is to master the art of short story writing. Here's what he says: "I don't know about you but at school they told us short story writing was harder than novel writing. For a full time writer this statement is nonsense - but it does show how short story writing is respected and even regarded with some degree of awe. "The good news is that I can teach you the easy way to create a very publishable short story - and very quickly. "My short story writing course has been downloaded more than any other of my resources - something like 90,000 times in the last ten years. I've completely revised its contents and included an up-to-date listing of all the short story markets currently available to the aspiring short story writer." Here's what's included in this book: A thorough examining of the art and craft of short story writing - and how to easily make money writing short stories for publication. PART ONE: MINDSET We look at mental preparation and having the correct writer's mindset before we start. We examine time management, your self belief mechanisms, and goal setting. PART TWO: THE BASICS Here we ponder the nature of inspiration and originality. How to come up with ideas, characters and subject matter for your stories. We also discuss more specific writing issues like genre, scope, style and how to deal with them. PART THREE: Construction Time Here I introduce the 7-Step Story Generator, an easy way to come up with powerful short story ideas in less than ten minutes. In a whole new section I also show how to create instantly compelling characters. We delve in to character's agendas, their interactions, and the consequences of facing and overcoming obstacles. Plus, how to use the 5-Point Plot Structure, and create compelling stories through the use of proper style and tone, the correct point of view, tense, and the all important twist at the end of your stories. For fan fiction and romance writers I explain the ‘1-2-3-Bang’ theory and other short story structures. PART FOUR: WRITING YOUR STORY Here we examine professional techniques like fast writing, self-editing, formatting and polishing the final edit. PART FIVE: Submitting Your Work Here we include information on how best to contact magazine and anthology editors online and off for best results.

About the Author:

Rob Parnell has been writing fiction since he was five years old. Born in Winchester in the UK, he lived for a long time in London, pursuing a music career until, suitably chastised for his impertinence, he moved to Adelaide, Australia, where he now teaches writing and success strategies to his many thousands of subscribers. His preferred genre is the thriller - sometimes with a supernatural edge - in which he writes short stories, graphic novels, YA novels and adult thrillers. Rob has written over fifty non-fiction self-help titles and been published all over the world for the last fifteen years. Also a composer, singer, music producer and budding movie maker, Rob is ecstatically happy to be married to Robyn Opie Parnell, his savior and the popular bestselling children's author.
