Story Length Question

Embittered but Blooming in Bushwick is going to take all the suspense out of this week’s action by claiming the Codename of the Week award. Congratulations Embittered. His question:

Should he send a 30 page story or two 15 page stories for his application?

That’s easy, sort of. First of all, send the best story. If the 30 page story is the best, send that. If it’s tied, send the two 15 pagers. Why? You’ll be spreading your nets a little wider. You give a reader two options instead of one. And yes, I like your list of Iowa, Michener, Virginia, Michigan, Cornell, and Arizona, and yes I think you should add at least two more. Rock on, EBiB.
