MetadataShow full item record
This thesis presents relevant research on accepted practices for writing and revising short fiction, applies the advice to an original piece of short fiction, and analyzes the results of this application. The following presents an original short story from “germ” to final draft. Four drafts are presented with commentaries on how the research informed the development of each draft. Specific changes to each draft are discussed and contextualized within the wider body of research. The result is a thorough documentation of how a young fiction writer may utilize relevant, significant resources to develop effective short-story writing via presentation of the advice’s results on an emerging text.
