All authors are gods in their own eyes. We think our work is the greatest thing produced under the sun, until someone comes around and points out the many flaws in our “flawless” work.

Hopefully you’re not like me and require multiple people pointing out your flaws until you finally swallow the bitter pill of humility and say, “Yeah, you’re right. My work isn’t nearly as amazing as I thought it was.”

And I’m not just talking about bad grammar or typos, either. I’m talking about the overall structure of your story, and even the story itself. Maybe it’s a good idea, but the execution needs a major revamp. Or maybe the execution is brilliant, it’s just that, what’s the whole point? What’s the story arch?

Hi, my name is David Strickleton, and this is a blog all about writing fiction. I have been writing mostly short stories for the last ten years, a selection of which I have published on Amazon Kindle under the title, "Nameless and Other Stories". I have also published my first novel, "The River" (also available through Amazon Kindle) it is a Y/A story about 18 year-old Patrick who along with a girl travels to America to save a reclusive musician from a fate Patrick has glimpsed through prophetic dreams. I am currently working on short stories and am hoping to have on of my latest pieces, "Anemone" included in an anthology. Along the way, I am trying to soak up as much advice and wisdom about the art and craft of writing fiction as possible. To this end, I thought it would be a good idea to start my own blog on this subject and hopefully engage other readers and bloggers with shared knowledge and opinions.
