Writing Inspiration #26

Writing short stories is like weaving of tales from a single thread of thought. It is an art only the greatest of them like Marquez, Maurier, Chekov, Walker, etc. have mastered. While there is no one way of doing it, there are certain things that can help you go a long way in writing just the best stories a reader has ever come across.

So, for anyone who loves to write short-stories, this could be a gem of an advice. Our very own, Poe, has never gone wrong in enchanting his readers with his horror tales. Anyone who has read his stories will quite agree to this. Personally, I feel this could be a timeless advice on the art of crafting short stories.

  1. Such a great advice by Edgar Allan Poe and yes even I write short stories, Asha cause it is just something that I have recently started and pure imagination. It is so nice to write them and keep ourselves occupied.
