But honestly, when I read a shorty no matter how beautifully written I'm left wanting more. I want to know the ins and outs of the character, not just one or two idiosyncrasies that make them who they are for a few pages. I want to meet their neighbors, know their toilette habits (not really) and find out what makes them tick. Of all the shorties I've ever read only a few have accomplished that feat. When my butt plunks down to read a book I'm not planning on going anywhere for a while. The fam's on their own for dinner and even breakfast if I'm still engrossed. Been known to read a book in its entirety over night.
Everyone has their own unique style of writing and story telling. Mine just happens to use a few more pieces of paper to do it. And that's the short of it.
This could be the least I've ever written:)
