Matty Dalrymple talks with Richie Narvaez about

STRETCHING YOUR WRITING MUSCLES WITH SHORT FICTION, including using a short whodunit as a way of learning story structure and the basics of character conflict; the importance of being a reader in your genre to be aware of trends and tropes; the value of sketching out your story idea in advance; how a short story is like a cocktail party; using short fiction and free writing as a way to get out of your own way and unleash your creativity; and the importance of just writing the damn thing.
