7 Sentences

jimvanpelt offers an interesting post about an exercise he's using with his creative writing class.

I've seen variations on the 7 steps before, but never broken down to the point where you actually write a story in only 7 sentences. It's an interesting exercise and excellent for developing stories.

Damn Muse

She ambushed me just now with a story idea for the mundane SF issue of Interzone. Deadline is 10/31. Death march? Call is a sprint.



Edited at 1340 to add:

Muse suggested the following working title: "To Sleep"

I'm going to employ the "7 step" process cited earlier and the plotting tricks I picked up at the Tim Powers seminar (in an abbreviated manner) to get this mapped out since the deadline is so near. More as the story progresses. May ask for beta readers toward the end of next week if anyone is of a mind.
