Day 63

Are you more of a drabble/flash or a longfic/novel kind of writer?

Novels, hands down. I cannot for the life of me tell a short story. It always grows and grows like a chia pet. I’ve tried but they always feel empty, like a skeleton. Missing the muscles, the fat. My issue is sometimes, if I let myself, they get too long. When I started Elements, all I had was the idea of the five girls and the dynamics of their relationships to each other. How they contrasted yet fit together so well. Then it snowballed into this massive project spanning over my entire adult life.
