I spent most of this year either outlining or writing my book. I didn’t write one new short story. The only story I have out for submission has been kicking around for a while. So, as I start thinking about my goals for 2017, I know one of them is to write more short fiction.
I made this little infographic after reading this blog post by Emily Wenstrom.
Give it a read. It offers up a great strategy for outlining, writing and polishing your story in a week (particularly helpful if you happen to be into Ray Bradbury‘s method of writing a story every week, starting the first week of January and ending the last week of December).
Feel free to save the image and print it off – then get writing!
