How to Write Your First Story

As a technical writer, I create user guides, white papers, configuration instructions… corporate nonfiction, if you will. I’d never written a story until very recently. If you’re struggling to write your first story, maybe these tactics and strategies – or look at them as tips & tricks – will help you find your way.

Give and Take

This book is my attempt to organize what I’ve learned about writing stories. Once I had a proof of concept, I felt empowered to forge ahead on my own; I hope you’ll find the same.


This book doesn’t cover grammar or spelling. Other excellent online resources discuss those essential building blocks.
