SHORT FICTION

FAIRYTALES WITH BITE

In Short Fiction I discuss why fairytales fit a short story format so well and what fairytales and other short stories have in common.    One thing I forgot to put on is that both fairytales and other short stories should have a strong emotional response on your readers.

THIS WORLD AND OTHERS

In Legacies, I look at legacies in terms of the impact characters have on your story, other characters and so on.  I discuss Roald Dahl’s legacy briefly (I could have written much more about that!).

I discuss Roald Dahl in more detail here and share the  YouTube clip of the opening and closing credits for his Tales of the Unexpected.  I also list some of my favourite Dahl stories.
