    I’m one of those folks who think it’s harder to write a short story than it is a novel, but you’ve talked me into giving it another try, Lori. Soon, very soon.

    I am considering this type of effort soon. With 150 essays (1000 words/less) and now a monster of first draft novel (Way too long) done, I’m edging toward shorter pieces to hone more of my voice and skills, and as you point out, experiment with a few different genres. (Oh, and surely I could use a new reputation as well!)

    Talk about “coming out of the writer’s closet” I am actually a nonfiction writer, but I think if I were to write fiction, I would enjoy the short story format. Maybe I should play around with this a bit more. Thanks for the motivation.

    Writing short stories sounds beneficial to both new and experienced writers. Thanks for the post, Lori.
