I have made this blog lon…

I have made this blog longer, because I have not had the time to make it shorter.

To paraphrase Blaise Pascal...but he's right in terms of short story writing. Honing a story so it is lean and sharp and short takes time, lots of editing time and lots of thinking and linking time. For a short story to gleam and cut like a perfect small diamond it must have space to grow in the imagination and draft and then to shrink in the edit.
