Another Tough Decision

I have decided — NaNo notwithstanding — to shelve all of my novel ideas and work instead on short stories. Fortunately, I have several ideas that should work well for short stories.

There are a number of benefits to this:

  • Allows me to hone my craft in a slightly easier format.
  • Gets my name out their sooner because it doesn’t take as long to write and edit.
  • Gives me (hopefully) some income that will allow me to spend the time needed to fully get my novel ideas ready.

I don’t see it as a step backwards, because many of the greats in sci-fi and fantasy started in short stories. Rather, I’m walking in the footsteps of the masters. It just seems I have to learn to walk before I can run, but I’m okay with that.
