I love short stories because I love to read. I live an awfully busy lifestyle, in between full time work and my own personal writing projects, which means I don’t have a lot of time to read. I have dozens of books piled up on my coffee table and on shelves that I’m itching to read or re-read, but they keep getting pushed aside in favor of my other passions. That doesn’t mean that I have to stop reading entirely though, and I’ve found ways to get around the roadblocks that prevent me from doing so.
I just end up reading short stories. So, so many of them.
