On Writing - The Fractalization of Fiction by Fran Wilde
"The Fractalization of Fiction" is an excellent essay by Fran Wilde that gives us a totally different way of looking at how to write a short story. I never thought about breaking each scene, paragraph, and sentence into a beginning, middle, and end. Like most everyone else I always thought that applied to the entire story not each part of it. But I can see where her advice will make the story as a whole much more powerful.
