Been trying to get a novel off the ground for years, but don’t have the patience or finances to really do it. A lot of my stories — which I just started posting to Medium today (with more to follow! — plug!) — are very slipstreamy and don’t really have a solid market for them with traditional publishers. Short stories seem to, at least, be a way to get my work into some venues that are more apt to take chances that a literary agent would. That said, I’m going to be trying self-publishing on Medium (what I’ve seen so far doesn’t make me too enthusiastic though) to see if I can build up more of a following, and republish some older works that are now out-of-print or off the Web, and some newer ones that are weirder and maybe unmarketable totally.
