Obligatory, Introductory.

Hello, world!

Think fast: how many parts does a story have? 3? 4? 5?

Meh…depends on who you ask and what purpose their answer serves. Most recently, I read a book on writing that says there are four parts to any story: a situation, an issue, an action and an outcome.

Some stories are as short as six words, others surpass six-hundred-thousand by series’ end, but these components can be found in all of them, over and over again. Here’s a 60-word story for you: the obligatory, introductory first post to my writing blog.

Situation: a 20-something lady loves to read and write; she believes in the power of words to build-up, break down and change worlds at more than a fictional worldbuilding level
Issue: said 20-something is somewhat of an antisocial extrovert and recently began working from home; the extrovert in her misses discourse with others
Action: she starts a writing blog
Outcome: TBD…

Is this a story you want to read? Maybe you need a bit more before you decide to stick around or DNF. Here’s a little, not-subtle-at-all foreshadowing: the posts on this blog will contain my thoughts, tips, tools and techniques that help me organize said thoughts into stories, along musings of my restless mind on my writing journey…

To be continued.
