I am a really keen writer (I wouldn't be on here if I wasn't!) and aiming to be an author but I always write stories that are only about ten pages long. It is too long for my school teacher, but how am I supposed to try and publish books as short as that!? When I read my stories to myself, they sound really rushed, like I squished all the action parts together. I get bored when I reach pages full of description, so maybe that has something to do with that. But in books like Eragon, there is plenty of action and not too much description but it doesn't seem rushed at all! Please, how do authors do that, and how can I make my stories 20 times longer!?
