As writers, we love to tell stories. Some are naturally going to be longer than others, but what should be a writer’s focus in their career? Short fiction? Novels? Novellas? All of the above? That’s the question I hope to answer with this blog.
The truth is, some writers write in a different range than others. For example, my book Kingslayer is only 35,000 words, while other writers have books that are over twice that much. The point remains the same: different writers write different stories that are different sizes. So what should you focus on?
Well, it depends. What kinds of stories come more naturally to you? If the answer is that you write longer stories, focus on those. If you write shorter stories instead, focus on those and publish them in anthologies. In the age of digital publishing, there’s no shortage of platforms for what you want to write and how you want to see them in print.
The bottom line is this: some writers work differently than others, so you need to focus on what works best for you.
