I read something about this recently and it sort of got me thinking. I really do have this sort of 4,000-word comfort zone for my short stories. I've produced a few novellas that I had intended to be novels, but I seem to like 20,000 words for longer works. And my poetry is pretty much always 39 lines. Do you guys think you have a natural length you gravitate to as writers? And if so, what can be done to work around these or with them? I don't mind it for my short stories and poetry. I think it kind of helps. I write so much in those areas that it's like I've got a real feel for it. But I would like to write to a more average book length. I'm not really sure how do adjust my storytelling compass or whatever you want to call it. Any ideas? Can you relate?
