I’m a comics guy to the bone. Why waste thousands of words when a couple of panels will do? When you can get so much more information out of a single image? And more quickly, too? I guess it’s safe to say you’re not getting a 700 page novel out of me anytime soon. More like seven pages.
But sometimes, I do write short fiction. And usually, it gets really short. Six word stories, two sentence stories, twitter fiction, any kind of flash fiction. And sometimes it ends up here. Usually with an image or two, just so you have something to look at while you’re spending all that time reading.
