Short stories explode – novels smoke, says Paolo Bacigalupi Quotes for Writers (and people who like quotes)

A short story is more an explosion...Short fiction seems more targeted – hand grenades of ideas, if you will. When they work, they hit, they explode, and you never forget them. Long fiction feels more like atmosphere: it’s a lot smokier and less defined.

A novel is about atmosphere
