How do we measure a good Love Story?
Does the length of a created story will affect the whole outcome of the story.
Here are some thoughts to think about about the length of every story.
The Rule of Length
The rule of length
How do we measure a good story?
Short or long story which one is good.
Does the length of a story affect the significance of the story?
Other than the given title the first thing that I usually sneak each time I read a story or a novel especially in the romance genre is the length, because this determines and will give me an idea on how my reading will go through.
Long lengthy story for me gives me the impression that it is more complete than a short length story.
Short lengthy story or sentence will give the impression like a quote or a verse.
We can also find out that most publishers require a Word count before submitting to them a typical story for them to know their expectations and give them an idea on the outcome and the formatting of the book before they will publish.
Here are some tips why length are sometimes important.
1. Gives the impression to calculate the days to read.
2. Can help to determine the pages of your book through the word count.
3. It is good to use as a part of a contest rule to determine which story would be good.
4. If it is for novel, the more lengthy the words the more it counts your accomplishment
5. There is a challenge in terms of length because this will enhance you to put more words or cut the unnecessary words.
One of the challenges that occurs during November is the NanoWrimo.
I haven't yet tried this challenge but I heard that it's a writing of a thone of words.
The simultaneous flow of words was enhanced here.
It's a good challenge in writing a length novel or story.
But, anyway whether it is long or short, as long as we show it properly how the story goes and we are satisfied with the outcome of the finished book then the length is just only a motivation to accomplish a rule that was traditionally required.

Our Question from "Romance/Love Newsletter (September 15, 2021)"
Which month is your favorite and do you also have that atmospheric condition of each month that may affect your writings? can you share about this?
I love fall! The warm days, the cool nights and the colorful landscape. Each month brings a new season and landscape to my world and in my stories too. Of course, if my characters are outdoors, the season/weather would affect what they are doing.
Not sure that months have any prompt on my writing. Thank you for highlighting The Veterans Group.
Monty The Grim Reaper
Months, seasons, have no effect on me. I write as the muse flows. While COVID endured, I wrote and edited and now I have a number of plots to consider expanding. My dilemma is which one? They are all yelling for my time.
January signifies the beginning of the year
February signifies the depth of winter
March launches March Madness
April the cruelest of all months - the tax man cometh for us all
May showers us with sweet flowers of love
June brings the summer season
July brings us July 4th picnics
August brings us the heat of hell on earth
September begins the cooling season
October brings autumn splendor
November brings political madness every four years
December ends the year with snow covering the land.
