What are you going to do with your short story when you’ve finished it? I’ve gotten so I like writing short stories and novellas much better than writing full-length novels. I don’t have to stick with them over a longer period of time like I do with novel-length manuscripts. Also, for the shorter ones (about 8,000 to 12,00 words or so), I just need one problem/incident/crisis that I need to deal with and resolve. My goal is to publish collections of short stores or novellas. I’m also thinking about publishing short stories as stand-alone eBooks that I can offer at lower prices to attract buyers.
