This week’s exercise follows on from last week’s. Take your ‘Lost love’ piece and rewrite is as a short story called ‘Lost’, in the third person (He, She, They). Attempt to arrange your material in the form of a series of scenes, using dialogue and precise sensory detail. Imply as much as you state, withhold as much as you reveal. This is really hard, but it will make us all better writers.
