Sometimes, to write a short story, I need to write three to get one. I am never fully satisfied that I have written the one I like.
The good thing about this is that, I can develop and edit the ones I don’t really like and eventually they become a short story. It is just like creating artwork.
The short stories I like best are the ones I can write in 20 to 30 minutes and it flows effortlessly in the first draft.
A new short story is coming this week – that’s a deal.
