  1. I admire your ability to write a story in 50 words or less. The shortest story I’ve written (which I put online yesterday) is 616 words long. I have a tough time telling what I feel is a complete story with a lesser word count and in fact, most of my short stories are around 1200 to 1500 words long.

    1. Thanks so much, I try to make the 50 word stories as complete as I can, but, I’m totally with you on the lengths. Because, I know deep down, the 50 word stories are missing vital pieces of their journey, leaving the reader to fill in those pieces of the puzzle that should be controlled by me, which is ultimately why I started expanding the shorts. As, I find the expanded versions more satisfying, more complete, in my head, not just a shadow of a story, pretending to be complete.
