    In this episode of Knotty Geeks, we take the premise we discussed in Episode 28 and use it as a springboard to creating a short science fiction story.

    We go through, step by step, the basics on how a writer creates a short story from scratch, starting from setting, then characters, then motivations, then plot.

    Going through the process with another person was a new experience for me and I found it quite enjoyable and fun. I hope you do too!
