The Making of Paperman – 3+1 Lessons from Finishing a Short Story
I’m not a celebrated famous author (yet). But I still would like to share some of the lessons I learnt from finishing a short story, because I would like to learn from your examples too.
Paperman – a short story
"This story is about how I did not become a superhero," says Daniel, the teenage protagonist of Paperman.

I really hope you'll enjoy reading it. Also, I'd be happy to read your thoughts in the comments section.
