One comment on “How To Write A Story: Outlining Challenge

  1. Thanks for the shout out on the podcast! I did the outlining challenge and even started writing a story from it.

    I’m excited about this month’s challenge. I submitted one dialogue short (1500 words), which didn’t make it in the top 5. I’ve resubmitted another short that is 727 words. We’ll see. It would be awesome to see the top five people chosen come from WAR audience.

    More than anything though it’s a reason to keep “putting that pen to the paper” as Kevin says.

    I am mulling over taking the 1500 dialogue short and expand it to a 5,000 short story with dialogue tags and more story development. After all, I’m 30% of the way to 5,000 words.
