Why write short stories?
Here are some of the benefits:
- Speed: you can write six (or more) short stories in the time it takes to write one novel;
- Income: short stories sell;
- Short stories can give you inexpensive, ongoing sales promotions for your novels;
- You can sell short stories for $2.99, exactly as you might price a novel.
How long it does it take to write a short story?
It takes me three hours to write and publish a short story of 2,000 words.
Longer stories, of 10,000 words take me a day.
You can take whatever time you need.
Since short stories are much faster to write than novels, and MUCH easier to structure, try writing short stories if you’re just starting out writing fiction.
