Everyone is so connected to so much different entertainment, they don't seem to have time to invest in anything anymore. Youtube videos are like the most entertaining thing to certain demographics. And in that timeframe of what? 1 minute - 2 minutes? They're entertained.
Television and videogames are so in right now that it's almost like a media overload. So, I'm wont to think shorter is better.
Agree 100% actually. if we can even get people to read it's a miracle, reading a long book is even more of a miracle. Besides all that, write shorter books and you can write more of them
