How Long Should My Story Be?

 It is about the story the author tells with the number of words written…. ” 

Joe Leonardi

I tend to agree with Edgar Allan Poe who believed that all works should be short.
“There is”, he writes, “a distinct limit… to all works of literary art—the limit of a single sitting.”
He especially emphasized this “rule” with regards to poetry,
but also noted that the short story is superior to the novel for this reason.

I am an independent, self-published teller of tales,
an author, as of yet, scarcely any renown.
However, as a storyteller, I know who I am,
and with that persona, I am both confident and comfortable. I invite you to please visit my website,

I write of the damaged and broken, because that is the norm. For each person who overcomes their demons, there are hundreds, if not thousands, who do not.

It is their stories I tell. 

Thank you,
