1,000 Words

Ah, short stories. And short story formats!

Always been a weakness of mine. Still, it's good to stretch your wings, and I'm hoping it will make my long-form stories better.

The trouble is I don't *think* in 1,000 word stories. To me, 1,000 words is a snapshot. A single scene. Masters of the craft can use that one scene to tell an incredible story, one that stretches forwards and backwards from that moment of time.

Anyway. It's a struggle. But one that I'm devoting to improving! Thankfully there are a few good publishers of short-form sci-fi. Unfortunately I've had no traction with them so far... but hey, maybe some day!

Until then, back to the writing desk!
