Daily Quote


If you take Neil’s quote one step further, you could say the short story is the Rodney Dangerfield of the literary world. “I don’t get no respect!” his catchphrase laments. Agents and publishing houses tend to shun short stories, but you can’t keep a good story down. There appears to be a growing popularity of the form, fueled perhaps, by our busy 21st-century lives. I enjoy the short story’s versatility and its ability to accommodate the desires of the writer. Besides, I have a soft spot for the underdog.

Do you use the short story format in your writing?


Keep on writing.

  1. Interesting thought. If I could craft it and I might have in a novel I have on the back burner, each chapter could be taken as a short story on its own, I only just realised that after reading your words here, that would be my writing goal I think. again interesting thought.
