This weekend I visited the Swecon SF convention in Upppsala. I had gotten the unexpected opportunity to participate in a shortstory-writing workshop with US author Kelly Link as an instructor. Four courageous Swedes had submitted one story each in English for her scrutiny.
This was my first experience of training my authorial craft in this format and it was rewarding. Kelly made two good rundowns on various dos and don’ts and taught me some good points on catching the readers’ attention in individual scenes. I have already started to look into my current writing projects for weak spots in need of revision.
