Short person speaking here. At just on 5 foot, I spend a lot of my life looking up. Living in London made summer a horror. No tube journey was complete without my ending up with my nose wedged in someone's armpit. Joyous.
A point I make to drama students is that short is often good. Better a well thought out scene with a proper beginning, middle and end than an interminable muddle that blurs the point.
Short in games does not mean bad either. Intense wins out over long-drawn any day, but is notoriously hard to achieve in PbP online. Long stories, short episodes is what I aim for.
Short is also for this post. I'm a fan of economical writing (pace Tolkein
and the three volume gang). One day I'll manage it myself. In the
meantime, longwinded phrases, subclauses and conjuctions are my friends.
