Observation on the value of short stories

I picked up “The Best of Fantasy, 2004” at Bookmans a few weeks ago and before every short story there’s a mini-bio stating the works these authors have previously published or are attempting to publish soon. I noticed that about 95% of these authors all started with publishing short stories in various sci-fi or fantasy magazines. They didn’t start with huge, epic novels. They began small. I think a lot of writers (including me) forget that its a whole lot easier to practice your craft on a smaller scale than a larger one.
