Heartbreaking, astounding, short

I've got a number of projects going at the moment, but I'm thinking about nanofiction. Over on Twitter, I occasionally write single pieces of fiction. I'm thinking about a serial that would cover a larger story arc. Unlike a preexisting large piece that's merely been broken into 140 character chunks, this would have to be standalone "chapters", each with its own emotional freight.

A challenge, yes. But is it one worth taking up? Is this creative energy better spent on regular material? What can I learn from the exercise that would make me a better writer?

I've always had a problem with brevity, or lack thereof. Is this like a set of windsprints, done purely for the exercise benefit?
