A Novelist must give up accuracy in the pursuit of narrative drive and emotional impact’ as opposed to ‘the historian is required to give up dramatic interest’. (Jane Smiley, 13 Ways of Looking at a Novel, p21).

Some wise words below. Sue Hampton did just this and produced Ravelled and Other Stories. Josie Arden and John Samson also have novels and short story collections. Maya Alexandri has a couple of short stories published too.
Stretch yourself. Finished a novel? Write a short story. Blogging? Try a non-fiction book. Romance writer? A fantasy piece. #amwriting 🙂
