Default More Short Stories please

Although I've read many of the classic PAW novels, I'd really like to see more of the short story genre. I realize they would be too short to sell on Amazon, but so what. If a particular author gets into writing them, he could sell a compilation - that was what they did in the 1800s.

They don't have to fit the classical literature rules for short stories. I've read a few that were really short (a few paragraphs only) and still worthwhile. Jerry's vignettes are more on the long side for short stories, but I've read all those and everything else here that I could find.

I guess since I like them so much I should try writing them. But all the ones I've tried come out too long but too short for a novel. Not many people are good at it I suppose. Seems to me, though, the short story format would be ideal for teaching survival skills and instilling morals, each one kind of like a single episode of Dual Survival (except fictional instead of staged).

Take a look at PAW Fiction, a website with a lot of good writers/stories, along with some short stories.

I'm already familiar with it. I read unfinished stories, but can't get past the google-foo to register, so can't post or read completed stories.

I used to write a lot, but now the viewership here is but a minuscule fraction of its previous (when Obama was in office).

There is really no motivation for writers to post on here.

Especially now that admin has gone draconian.

I wrote and "published" two long stories and several short stories here. I think people liked them. Since then, I've written several more long stories on my computer but that are unpublished.

I'd like to share my new stories here. See, I have no intention of publishing them on Amazon, or selling them in PDF format or designing a book cover. I just like writing stories and sharing them. But I can't do that now.

I might put them on my personal blog but I couldn't share that with readers here. I find it unethical when writers do that and then use this website to advertise another website, personal blog or Amazon sales page.
