One writer asked an odd question: “can I write 50K words of short stories for NaNoWriMo? I don’t want to write a novel.”
Writing NaNoWriMo as short fiction: 50,000 words of short stories
I responded to the writer that I had no idea about the rules for NaNoWriMo — best to ask on the NaNoWriMo website.
That said, since I love short stories almost as much as novels, I wondered whether there might be any benefit to writing 50K’s worth of short stories. Here are some tips to make 50K words of short fiction pay. Of course you don’t need to be doing NaNoWriMo to write your 50K words, you can write them at any time.
