Armchair BEA 2014 – Guest Post – Short Stories and Novellas

chair

Hi friends! My pledge to read more short stories this year inspired this guest post that I wrote for Armchair BEA on ways to get started reading short stories and novellas. Got any of your own tips or story suggestions? I would love hear them.

    Dude, great article and thank you so much for the mention! I’ll post a link to this in our challenge.
    It’s curious to see how many short stories have been turned into films.

    Great post, C.J.! I have no trouble finding good short stories, though, only the time to read them (mostly because I prefer novels and so the short stories get put on the back burner). But I really do want to read more! Dog stories are always good for a cry. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thanks! Yes, I love doggies (although I have two cats). I’m going to try and make this the summer I read short stories. I agree that’s it can be hard when there are so many good books out.

    You’re so right about starting with a favorite writer. I used to read short stories all the time when I was in my late teens/early twenties, and then I stopped. Recently I picked up one of Neil Gaiman’s short story collections, and I’m hooked on short stories again!

      I used to read a lot of short stories when I was younger as well. I don’t know why I never think to read more of them now, but I’m hoping to change that starting this summer. I just read my first Neil Gaiman book a few weeks ago. Maybe I’ll try checking out some of his short stories too.
