The Masters Review Craft Essay: “This Is How A Writer Writes A Story”

I’d been writing one craft essay for The Masters Review, and then most of the way through, days before the deadline, I scrapped it and wrote this one¬†instead:¬†THIS IS HOW A WRITER WRITES A STORY.

It’s actually kind of funny too (not haha funny) – because the creation of the essay itself mirrors the process I write about in the essay.

Ouroboros kind of a deal.

Thanks to the fine folks at The Masters Review for reaching out to make this happen.

I’m honored to have work published with them.

Here’s the book I reference in the essay:
