Much of my time recently has been taken up with editing and refining my second regency master series romance, “A Master of Industry”, due out in a few weeks. By way of complete contrast, I also enjoyed attending a one-day workshop on the art of short-story writing for a particular women’s magazine. It included exercises, when we were asked to write brief snippets on a particular theme (then share them with the group). It was great fun and very informative, as well as inspiring, so hopefully I will be trying my hand at that in due course. We were reminded of the Ernest Hemingway story in six words, “For sale, baby shoes, never worn.” Have you tried writing your life story in this style? Mine could be “Had cleric and kids, moved around.” More recently it might be, “Retired, stopped moving around, wrote novels.”
