If you’re looking to write more fiction in a shorter period of time, you’re in luck. 

According to a recent report from the US National Science Foundation (NSF), you could write up to four short stories in an hour. 

This isn’t a new idea, of course. 

In 2015, US writer Michael Pollan released the book  How to Write a Good Fiction Prompt . 

He described the technique as “creative writing” that he believed had been used by authors and writers for hundreds of years. 

What makes this novel approach different is that Pollan suggests writing out your stories from start to finish in a single word or sentence, and then encountering the reader in the process. 

So, for example, if you write: The sun is shining. 

Then you could have the reader in the process as they start to read the sentence and receive the prompt. 

You could also use the technique to create an audio book, where you listen to your story and then you can interview the listener to give them the opportunity to ask you questions and ask them more about your writing. 

As a bonus, the prompts are also available to download on Amazon.

It’s a neat technique, but how do you actually get your story out into the world? 

Well, the best way to do this is by using your writing to help other writers. 

To that end, I spoke with Elizabeth McNeill of the author Evan Dyson and the author Elizabeth MacKinnon about the techniques that they used to create their stories. 

They said that when it comes to writing fiction, it’s really about the story and the characters as opposed to the plot. 

It can also be about how you’re creating an emotional connection between the readers and yourself. But this also means that you need to be engaging in your story. 

Elizabeth said that if you don’t engage in the story, it’ll be a trying to get the audience to care about your story as much as you do. 

She also said that writing a story that is good for the reader is essential, not necessary. 

For example, if you write a story about a man who gets a tattoo, he’s going to feel awkward and awkward. 

If you write a story about a woman who’s coming out of her past and she feels conflicted about her past, she will be more comfortable with the story.

And so on. 

Each of these stories were written from the perspective of a writer, so they were created with the reader in mind. 

That can be particularly important for fiction, because in fiction, writers often need to explain why their characters are the way they are. 

And that’s a tricky thing to do because they can feel they’re telling themselves what they think they want to be. 

Of course, it’s also important to be aware of how your story will affect other writers. 

However, Elizabeth and Evin recommended using the technique in conjunction with your writing. 

The tips they gave were: Write a compelling story that resonates with both the listeners and your readers. 

Use your characters in a way that will help to connect them to the story. Make sure that the character is present in the  story at all times and that the scene is interesting to you. 

 The method also helped the authors develop their story more effectively. 

Read your own story, and then interact with others in their story. 

Replace your old story with new story that is different from your original story and keep your readers in mind. If you’re really happy with your story , theres something you can do to make it better.
