This project explores a creative fiction writer's process through writing four pieces of short fiction. Documenting his progress along the way, the writer uses peer-revision to refine his work. This method is intended to improve early drafts by both interacting with readers and utilizing the examples of well-know authors. The writer's stories will be considered successful if their plot moves at a bright pace, if the characters and setting are authentic, and if they come to a satisfying conclusion. The project will consist of these stories and an accompanying writer's notebook, which examines revisions representative of a move to good fiction writing.
