There are so many media platforms that the idea of committing solely to long-form* written texts as the focus of my creative output might seem perverse. I’m not hugely successful and don’t expect to be, I’m not on FB or Twitter, I don’t have an instagram account or a YT channel, I’m not on radio or TV, I don’t make films or lifestyle podcasts, I don’t game, I don’t collaborate. I don’t even listen to advice on the most sure way to become successful (genre fiction, apparently).
All I do is write stories.
It’s a bit like being a stonemason in a world built from concrete and glass.
* I don’t write short stories any more. I was faced with a choice some years ago. Long. Short. I chose long.
