Hi everyone, just wondering what everyone thinks about short stories. Like very short, things that can be completed in 5-30 mins. (Basically picked up and finish one of the story lines in a single sitting). I’ve always quite liked them, but my feeling is that I’m probably in the minority? I also noticed that a couple of short stories I thought would do well, finished below what I was expecting in the ifcomp. So not sure if that was a length or topic issue.
I know it depends on what each story is in particular, but in general what do you think? Like them, hate them? Why?
- Love them.
- They’re ok, they have their place.
- Eh, I’d read them if there was nothing else to do.
- Dislike them.
