- How is your "little" story coming along? The word little, in my experience, is used whether you write flash fiction, as I do, or full length novels! Annoying to short story writer and novelist alike!
- I'd write if I had more time, like you. We make the time because we are committed to what we do. You will find some time to do what you really love to do even if it is only 10/15 minutes a day. Those small packets of time mount up over the course of a month, a year and so on. I hear this all the time from those advocating us all to exercise more and it is true for that as well as for things like writing.
- Short stories take less time than novels so you must bash out loads of short stories then. Again in my experience the word bash is always used. And, of course, novels take a lot longer but what is annoying here is the attempt to compare chalk with cheese. Short stories and novels have different "needs" but but both must be crafted to meet those needs. It is never a question of bashing any kind of writing out!
END RESULT IF YOU REALLY ANNOY A WRITER?
If you annoy a crime writer, you will end up dead in one of their stories. No way will you be the hero/heroine. There will be a lot of blood involved - yours.
If you annoy a fantasy/fairytale writer you will end up dead in one of their stories. A dragon or other foul fiend is likely to be involved. It certainly won't be pleasant.
If you annoy a horror writer, you will end up dead in one of their stories but you won't even get to rest in peace. With zombie fiction making a comeback, the horror writer is in a real position to make you suffer!
But then you wouldn't dream of doing this, would you?
