Review

I have had the pleasure of following Joe Bunting's work on his amazing website called Write Practice. I have really grown to appreciate him and his talent.  He is also kind, generous, helpful and very intelligent.

If you are serious about learning how to become a better writer, I highly recommend Write Practice.

Have you ever wanted to write a short story, but thought you couldn't do it?  I admit, I didn't think I could write a short story until I read Let's Write a Short Story!

I can't tell you how thrilled I am to have come across this gem of a book, because I learned so much. This is the kind of book you'll want to keep referring to throughout your writing career.

Joe Bunting is a brilliant and prolific writer who takes difficult concepts and makes them easy to understand. He is generous and offers a variety of pointers too.

In Let's Write a Short Story!, Joe Bunting goes step by step explaining how to build a well-written short story from scratch.  Not only that, he gives you resources and tips on how to submit your stories to literary journals, etc.

I have read many books on writing and found some of them to be boring.  But not this book, I didn't want to put it down. I found it  informative as well as inspiring.

Let's Write A Short Story! is valuable resource to any writer, whether novice or seasoned.  This book contains everything you ever wanted to know about writing short stories and more.

I highly recommend this book. I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

My name is Joe and I write novels, articles, and, of course, short stories. I want to help you write stories, too. I wrote Let's Write a Short Story! to create a community of writers who want to help each other write short stories and get better at the craft of writing.
