Short Story Writing

04 Jul

I’m working on a short story for an anthology. The word limit is 2000 to 5000. Right now I’m at 2300, but according to critique this morning, it needs to expand.

My problem is that while I love writing short stories- I like finishing the story- in my head, the world is bigger than just the one story; there are all these other tangents and characters that I want to explore as well. But my patience with trying to write novels is just not there.

So, I need to tighten and expand, and then submit (actually submitting is pretty key).
