A new favourite resource

I was cruising around LitReactor last night and happened upon a thread asking about Short Story Writing Resources. There was some discussion of Richard Thomas’ Short Story Mechanics course (which I cannot recommend strongly enough) and a few other links thrown in for good measure.

One of those links, however, was new to me: ReadToWriteStories.com.

I’m in love.

The site features writing lessons illustrated with deconstructions of contemporary stories. The first lesson I read was on writing active character descriptions and I was able to grab hold and dig right in.

Very well done.

You should check it out.
