Longer stories are preferable, my friend. I enjoy the character development you can do in a longer story and the detailed descriptions. While this story is enjoyable it does not have the punch of a longer story. I'm afraid shorter stories are much harder to craft to maintain the reader's interest.

I enjoyed it. Thank you for not being long winded. Sometimes short and sweet is.. short and sweet.

As someone who once wrote a story that was too long for a single post, maybe I'm the wrong one to chime in!

I'll go on record and say that long-form is my preference, because short-form leads to predictability. You have time for one good glimpse of shoeplay in a handful of words. There's not much time to build a scenario. As soon as we meet Brittany, we know she's going to lose her shoes by the climax.

On the flip side of that, when you commit to a longer story, you end up having to nudge the narrative along. You can't just have your characters involve their shoes or feet at every turn; you need to advance the plot and that can get tedious. It makes a more satisfying, detailed story...but at the same time, no one's getting turned on by Brittany meeting her friends at the coffee shop or going to work. They want to read how Brittany lost her shoes by the photocopier.

Props to you for trying the short in-out route because there could be something to that. I'm old-fashioned and I like long-form works. But a lot of folks, specifically the younger audience, are accustomed to shorter form digestion. And some folks just don't want to read the long and detailed background of why Brittany doesn't like shoes. They just want her to kick them off.
