I don't write short stories. I just don't think I have that type of writers mind. I'm more of the long epic fantasy kind of writer. Even now, my current WIP (which I hope will become my first published novel someday) is nearing 30,000 words out of the 100,000 I estimated. I can tell already, judging by how soon 40,000 will be coming up this novel will end up around the 150,000 to 160,000 mark instead.
Anyway, no sooner did I finish my short story and popped back to LJ land to see what was going on when I found this post from Magical Words: Short Stories v. Novels: Fight! by C. E. Murphy (mizkit) waiting to be read.
By the way, they have a cool website where each of the authors involved takes turns posting about their writing and publishing experiences.
