Is this ideal nowadays to do? I think I write better with shorter stories than novels. When I read over my novels I see much info dump and because it took me so long when I wrote it, one character ends up with 2 different names by the end of the 2nd. Should the length of this short story collection be the same word count as a good book length? Some of the short stories are longer than others. It's going to be different genres of short stories as well. I'm thinking ahead also because I need to edit and edit these things a few times anyway. Just getting your opinions on these. My grandmother does her own books of poetry. She sells them pretty well with others her age group. Didn't know if short stories would work the same way maybe?
