Writing Novels vs Writing Short Stories

If I’m trying to get better as a writer, good enough that I can enter contests and get published and then rob the Kwik E Mart and become Senator, I wonder if slowly writing novel chapters maybe isn’t the best way to go. Also, winding run-on sentences.

I started out as a short story writer. I’ve written short things here and there. But I’ve never actively done them. But maybe that should change. Maybe it’s better to continuously come out with shorter material than spend years working on a thing that goes nowhere.
