Short stories are love-hate for me. I like reading them. I like the idea of being able to sit down, write a story, not spending a million years finishing it or editing afterwords, and then having this cute bite-sized pocket of a world that anyone can read and enjoy without much commitment to read another hundred thousand words. I like analyzing short stories and seeing just how much they have in there.
But I think and expand waaay too much to ever fit any of my fantasy stuff into short form. I write disjointed scenes a lot, sure, but that's without explaining any of the background, etc, that someone not living in my head would need.
