Text Quotes
Thus, words being symbols of ideas, we can collect ideas by collecting words. The fellow who said he tried reading the dictionary but couldn’t get the hang of the story simply missed the point: namely, that it is a collection of short stories  (Short Stories Quotes) Long fiction is wonderful and you can lose yourself in it as a reader and as a writer, but short stories don’t allow the same kind of immersion. Often the best stories hold you back and make you witness them. This may be one of the reasons some people reject the form. That and the fact that they are harder work to read. A story will not let you get comfortable and settle in. It is like a stool that is so small that you must always be aware of sitting  (Short Stories Quotes) I think of myself as a writer who photographs. Images, for me, can be considered poems, short stories or essays. And I’ve always thought the best place for my photographs was inside books of my own creation  (Short Stories Quotes) Children can’t help but create: they need to put their mind on the page, they want to paint, to sculpt, to write short stories  (Short Stories Quotes) I’ve written short stories in first person, but you have so much more control writing in third person. Third person, you know what everybody’s thinking. First person is very limiting, and I could never sustain a first person novel before  (Short Stories Quotes) Dialogue that is written in dialect is very tiring to read. If you can do it brilliantly, fine. If other writers read your work and rave about your use of dialect, go for it. But be positive that you do it well, because otherwise it is a lot of work to read short stories or novels that are written in dialect. It makes our necks feel funny  (Short Stories Quotes) I love creating individual short stories within chapters, but I want to get better at building consistent narratives from start to finish  (Short Stories Quotes) You can write when you’re dyslexic, you just can’t read it. But I started writing short stories as a child and I found the short story format a real nice one. I love short stories and I love short documentaries or short films of any kind  (Short Stories Quotes) Sometimes I try my hand at turning out small profundities and uncertain short stories, but I always end up with just one single word: God  (Short Stories Quotes) I know it may sound silly, but I think my short stories have a life and identity of their own. They crop up in all sorts of places  (Short Stories Quotes) Songwriters are expanding time rather than compressing time. My short stories tend to be old fashioned, with a beginning, middle and end  (Short Stories Quotes) Short stories are tiny windows into other worlds and other minds and dreams. They are journeys you can make to the far side of the universe and still be back in time for dinner  (Short Stories Quotes) When I complete a novel I set it aside, and begin work on short stories, and eventually another long work. When I complete that novel I return to the earlier novel and rewrite much of it. In the meantime the second novel lies in a desk drawer  (Short Stories Quotes) Sail the main course in a simple sturdy craft. Keep her well stocked with short stories and long laughs. Go fast enough to get there but slow enough to see. Moderation seems to be the key  (Short Stories Quotes) My short stories are like soft shadows I have set out in the world, faint footprints I have left. I remember exactly where I set down each and every one of them, and how I felt when I did. Short stories are like guideposts to my heart  (Short Stories Quotes) You learn by writing short stories. Keep writing short stories. The money’s in novels, but writing short stories keeps your writing lean and pointed  (Short Stories Quotes) Short stories are designed to deliver their impact in as few pages as possible. A tremendous amount is left out, and a good short story writer learns to include only the most essential information  (Short Stories Quotes) If you write a hundred short stories and they’re all bad, that doesn’t mean you’ve failed. You fail only if you stop writing  (Short Stories Quotes) Short stories demand a certain awareness of one’s own intentions, a certain narrowing of the focus  (Short Stories Quotes) I knew from the age of 16 that I wanted to be a writer because I just didn’t think I could do anything else. So I read and read and wrote short stories and dreamed of escape  (Short Stories Quotes) As an actor, there is room for a certain amount of creativity, but you’re always ultimately going to be saying somebody else’s words. I don’t think I’d have the stamina, skill or ability to write a novel, but I’d love to write short stories and poetry, because those are my two passions  (Short Stories Quotes) You can’t write a novel all at once, any more than you can swallow a whale in one gulp. You do have to break it up into smaller chunks. But those smaller chunks aren’t good old familiar short stories. Novels aren’t built out of short stories. They are built out of scenes  (Short Stories Quotes) I started writing short stories. I tried writing horror, mystery, science fiction. I joined a little critique group here in town and ran my stories past them. After about three years, I tackled my first novel, subterranean. It took me 11 months to write  (Short Stories Quotes) I’m not interested in writing short stories. Anything that doesn’t take years of your life and drive you to suicide hardly seems worth doing  (Short Stories Quotes) A collection of short stories is generally thought to be a horrendous clinker; an enforced courtesy for the elderly writer who wants to display the trophies of his youth, along with his trout flies  (Short Stories Quotes) Hemingway is terribly limited. His technique is good for short stories, for people who meet once in a bar very late at night, but do not enter into relations. But not for the novel  (Short Stories Quotes) But at the same time, I have trouble keeping things out of books, which is why I don’t write short stories because they turn into novels  (Short Stories Quotes) I was well traveled, and I created this illusion of literacy through reading and writing. I wrote a book of short stories  (Short Stories Quotes) Though my short stories are the more readable, my novels do have more to say; and they will, if anyone has the patience for it, repay a rereading  (Short Stories Quotes) Short stories can be rather stark and bare unless you put in the right details. Details make stories human, and the more human a story can be, the better  (Short Stories Quotes)
