In the previous post, the interview with Stephen King, he proclaims that writers have lost interest in writing the short story. They may write a few stories, but quickly drift into novel writing. Is there more prestige in novel writing?
I love to read both the novel and the short story, which I realize is a major creative effort of the writer. Neither is easier to create. Each has its own demands on the writer’s ability.
For me, it is more challenging to write a short story, because I must limit the elements of a short story, complete it, and move on. I believe that the readers of today have limited time, and to entertain them, the short story is the ideal genre. What do you think?
