“The way -- the only way -- to 'find' your story is to tell it.” -- Stephen Koch in The Modern Library Writer’s Workshop.I participated in last weekend’s WritersWeekly 24-Hour Short Story Contest (more on this in tomorrow’s post). It’s an interesting exercise and one that illustrates today’s quote perfectly. Those registered for the contest are sent a prompt on the designated Saturday, and they have 24 hours to craft a story and submit it. Why is it an example of today's quote? Because, as it states, in order to figure out what the story is, the author has to begin writing at some point. You can only think about what the story might be for so long. I’ll share how I completed this task in Friday’s post.
