I feel about writing short stories like I do about religion. There’s no credible market for either one. If you’re in it because you need other people to be in it with you, and like it, you’re not only screwed, but it’s probably not real then anyway. I know that’s cultural heresy, on all counts. I’m OK with that. For me, both things are a path and, on a path, you’re traveling.
