A word on short stories

Writing short stories helped me determine that my writing is publishable, and meant that I had a 'writer's' CV to accompany my first manuscript when it was ready for submission. 

Though the short story and the novel are significantly different art forms, they require the same fundamentals of good writing. The compactness of shorter pieces allows an emerging writer to practise all elements of good storytelling without first having to write upwards of 60,000 words. Because it is only when we've penned the end of a story, that it's possible to test the quality of the words that come before it.
