The premium reward for Patrons at the $7 pledge level (or above!) is DRAFT BY DRAFT: ONE SHORT STORY FROM CONCEPT TO COMPLETION, a nonfiction textbook on creative writing. I walk draft-by-draft through the process of writing my short story "EXPLOSIONS," explaining every single significant alteration: think of a 50,000-word case study about a 5000-word short story. Delving deep into the process of writing one single story gives powerful examples of how to write and edit overall, with ultra-specific examples that reveal grander principles.
