My apologies if the title to this blog is somewhat misleading. This is a short story course, but for myself. Having wanted (and tried) to write for many years, I found that I had not been doing any independent study. I studied at university a long time ago, but it was in an area different from creative writing, and I have never felt I have had a grounding in technique. Recently I went to enroll in a creative writing degree at a university, but before I put my name down, I realised the cost would be prohibitive. Therefore, I have taken control of my own education in the form of this blog. So it is an introduction to the Short Story, but for me.
Perhaps though others might like to watch and read my invesitigation into the craft of the short story as well. I by no means claim I am an authority on such matters, nor that there is structure to my investiagation. I am imagining that it will be much like a spiders web, with one thread leading me onto another. Please feel free to comment if you have a differing opinion on a post I have made, just don’t spam a link to tablets that will grow the male appendage, I have enough of them in my medicine cabinet already.
