Over at StoryCrafters a couple of us are debating the pros and cons of writing short stories along with novels.
So, I'm curious. How many of you here write short things along with novels? How many have only written short stories or only novels?
Do you think writing short stories helps your novel writing?
Do you think that getting short stories published will help when you try to get your novel published?
If you don't write short stories, why not?
Also, I want to invite you all over to StoryCrafters. It's a nice little group of writers. There's a lot of good info there, we're a friendly group though we've been kinda quiet for a bit. Things are perking up so join our little group. We even have a private critique area to protect our first rights.
