I can answer such questions as "What is a short story?" "How do I go about writing one?" "How do I know when I`ve got a good idea?" Also questions on characters, plot (if any), conflict, resolution, etc. I cannot tell you how to get published or what formats might be interested in your work. My concern is with the story itself - does it work or doesn`t it?
I have read many short stories for pleasure and even more with a critical eye. I know what a short story is and is supposed to be. I have edited fiction books and contributed articles to several e'zines.
