The Virtues Of Brevity

Rod Walker liked this tweet explaining the virtues of brevity in storytelling.

Brevity in storytelling, RW thinks, is a good thing. Monster 300k word novels are likely a legacy of the imitation of Tolkien. Just because Tolkien wrote a really huge book (and did it well), many fantasy authors thought they had to imitate him (and they did it less well). There’s something to be said for short, sweet, and to the point.

Rod Walker’s novella Master Rogue: Mage Tome is short, and it’s free today (1/9/2018) at Amazon AmericaAmazon BritainAmazon Canada, and Amazon Australia.
