265: How to Plan a Short Story Based on a Masterwork

How do we use all of this masterwork analysis to actually iterate our own short story?

In this week’s episode, we look at the 624, Beat, and Trope analysis for the short story EYE WITNESS by Ed McBain (https://amzn.to/3Q2UpqV) and start discussing what kind of short story I might write based on all of the analysis.

This is where things start to go off the rails.

As you’ll see, Shawn and Tim aren’t always on the same page and struggle to communicate with each other.

We decided to leave this episode in so you can see what it looks like when an editor and author don’s see eye-to-eye.
