88 Short Stories Quotes

One of my standard - and fairly true - responses to the question as to how story ideas come to me is that story ideas only come to me for short stories.

So the anthology is very much intended for students, but I think we're all in the position of writing students now. Very few people are going around with a day-to-day engagement with the short story.

— Lorin Stein

The reason I shift gears constantly, why I'm doing an opera, why I've done essays, why I've written poetry for years that nobody wanted, why I do short stories and novels and screenplays ... is so I will have new ways of failing. This means becoming a student again.

— Ray Bradbury
