I like short stories

I like short stories

I am a slow reader: I like to take notes and appreciate the writing process.

Frequently the hour pass-by and I just read 10 pages.

 

Many big books are done with quickly:

I read the abstract, the first chapter and the last chapter

If I what I read is encouraging, I flip to the middle and figure out the complications in the story.

I either drop the book or I restart from chapter 2.

 

Of all kinds of literature I like short stories best.

Shorter than novella and plenty of personal experiences.

 

If your publisher demand books of 300 pages

Assemble the many sub- subjects in the novel as short stories.

 

The perfect short story should generate two strong emotions:

It should make you cry laughing,

It should make you cry hating or loving

Same difference.

 

Save us from big books and tenuous reading.
