Happy National Short Story Week 2016!

2016_november_short_storyweekIt’s that time of year again, National Short Story Week 2016 – running 14-20 November!

Short story readers and writers like me always appreciate efforts to concentrate much-needed attention on the short story. That’s one of the reasons I always look forward to this week. And I often tend to set aside short story collections I’ve been ‘meaning to read’ to tackle during this week.

What about you, readers and writers? Do you enjoy reading short stories? Writing them?

Reading any good collections you’d like to recommend during this year’s National Short Story Week?

    I love writing shorts, it provides an excellent interlude to the monstrously long novels I write. Perhaps I’ll take advantage of short story week this year

    Ooh, I agree with your approach of short story as interlude. So nice to mix novels and shorts in the writing process. Hope you will take advantage of short story week in these days, and happy writing!
