So not only did you teach me about writing memoir, you also taught me about reading and thinking about how others write memoir. Thank you so much! Rebecca

Welcome July Subscribers!!

A great big thank you to those who subscribed to Writers Circle in the month of July, 2012. 
I hope you find our posts enlightening and informational. If you want to see on this blog, a particular subject pertaining to writing, just let me know.

Our instructors at Writers Circle around the table, have the experience to answer questions and write articles on various subjects. 

Today I want to share an article by Stephen King on the subject of short stories.

What do you think? Are short stories going the way of  the dinosaur?


  1. Given the declining literacy rate and downward spiral of the American educational system, I do indeed think the short story is dying. So too are the other literary genres. Consumers want "litterture," not literature. It's part of the fast-food mentality where we don't have to wait too long or think too much. Just one unapologetic cynic's opinion . . .

  2. Robert, I am inclined to agree with you. I like your "litterture" not literature.
    Fast food, fast talk, fast life - if we could just slow everyone down a bit.
    Could it be that there is so much out there, at least we are told there is so much, that we are hurrying to get it all, and don't have time to do much but nibble at samples along the way?
