At least as far as I can do on my own, this was a very weird novella to finish. It started out as two seperate novelettes that kind of shared the same main character. Then I merged the two together. Finally I added a bunch of side stories that ended up twice as long as the actual main plot. So I merged chapters 4 and 6, and 8 and 10. Then the finall half ended up being shorter than the first half, and become more of a sequel short story.
I think I'm gong to stick to short stories for now on. And sometimes even those, like the ones in Petunia And The Wooden Shoes and other stories, ended up becoming part of a novella in and of themselves.
Not sure how I'm going to write larger books when I start doing counter-literary fiction.
If you have the time, please thank Amber for the awesome cover. She deserves her weight in gold.
