If you want to write short stories - and make money from them - this number one best selling ebook is for you.


Written by Multi-Published,

Award Winning
Australian Author

 Cheryl Wright




(This book became a number one best seller within four weeks of its release!)


You CAN Get PAID to write short stories!


As a new writer, I wanted to write short stories. 

I scoured the bookshops, but couldn’t find anything to teach me how to write them. I read gazillions of short stories and bought a ton of books on writing, but still couldn’t find anything specifically geared toward writing short stories.

It was a hard slog; without even a little bit of guidance, I felt like I was drowning. Even today, there is virtually nothing available that focuses totally on short story writing.

And let’s face it, writing short stories is completely different to writing novels, or any other form of writing. It’s a specialised area, and if you don’t understand the concepts, you just won’t sell your work. (And that’s what we’re all aiming for, right?) 

After earning more than $500 on the sale of just one story, I decided to write the book that I needed back in those early days.

I don’t know about you, but I’m one of those people who learns by doing, not being told, so the book was written as an interactive workshop – you will work your way through using the summary and exercise in each section.

You will be guided through every stage of writing your story, learn to brainstorm better outcomes, build realistic characters, give your character a unique voice, prepare your manuscript, and much, much more. I will teach you to:  

  • Create Memorable Characters
  • Create Authentic Settings
  • Fit your Character to his/her Surroundings
  • Physical Appearance vs. Imagination
  • Write Realistic Dialogue
  • Use Action Tags
  • Find Outstanding Ideas
  • Use Point of View
  • Write Dazzling Opening Sentences
  • Use Emotion, Conflict, and Motivation (and the differences between them)
  • Write a Twist at the End
  • Create Stunning Titles
  • Show, Don’t Tell – that annoying term that comes up all the time, but no-one ever bothers to explain

I’ve also included many of my ‘secret formulas’ and my thoughts on marketing and setting goals. I’ve even provided some markets to get you started. Using snippets from my own work as examples, I show you exactly how I do it. There’s no technical jargon or incomprehensible information; it’s all explained in a way that is easily understood.

If you’re looking for a book that will simply tell you what to do, you’ve chosen the wrong book!

This book could easily have sold for $29.95 – even more, but I’ve chosen to keep it affordable for all writers at all income levels.  (Why? Because when I was starting out, I simply couldn’t afford the tools I needed; I don’t want to put anyone else in that same position.)

This just might be the best US$12.95 you will spend all year!

Professional Reviews
Sarah White, freelance writer and editor
"Cheryl Wright has written a wonderful book covering the basics: developing characters, setting the scene, writing and selling short stories. It is an invaluable resource for people seeking financial success for their fiction writing."

Jill Maser, Published Author
"Think Outside the Square is loaded with information, clear examples and talent-stretching exercises. An essential addition for every writer's resource library.
I felt so prepared and inspired when I finished Think Outside the Square that I sat right down and wrote a 1,500-word story. I think it's my best yet!"

Sarah Cook, Author of Australian Fiction
“Think Outside the Square” is the most valuable instruction manual for writers that I’ve ever read.

Cheryl Wright shows you how to really get involved with your characters and produce a great story rather than just a bland piece of writing. Her “down to earth” approach really works!

There is no-one, but no-one… who would not benefit greatly from this book.
