Hi Laura - it's good to be reminded about the power of short stories :)
Hi Tony a great and timely post. I started writing my first book Gemini as a series of short stories and then I joined them up. The last time I looked at the first of five books was last March and I ground to a halt. Now in my review and edit this month the first book is now a series of short stories all linked up and I will follow this structure for the whole five books. As a disciple of SK and his On Writing book I was interested in his comments. Perhaps my concern about the length of some 5k to 6k stories is misplaced. Alexander.
