Yes - yes it is. This is why I like Medium. By getting in the habit of writing every day and by observing the stories people read, I can hone my craft. Same with lit mag submissions - over time, you get used to what is wanted in terms of publishing - then, you can write at that length - it's just in your brain. Of course, editing also matters. A lot.
