Ars technica claims that Amazon will publish shorter content to Kindle.  Maybe good news for Writers.

Paying for (short) content: Amazon to publish "Kindle Singles"

"Paying for (short) content: Amazon to publish "Kindle Singles"

Amazon is rolling out a separate section of its Kindle store meant for shorter content—meatier than long-form journalism, but shorter than a typical book. Called "Kindle Singles," the content will be distributed like other Kindle books but will likely fall between 10,000 and 30,000 words, or the equivalent of a few chapters from a novel.

The company believes that some of the best ideas don't need to be stretched to more than 50,000 words in order to get in front of readers, nor do they need to be chopped down to the length of a magazine article."
