Another story

Hi, so, I "finished" the first draft of my second story. I don't feel like the ending is quite right so I'll think about it some more and go back to in. In the mean time, started a new story about two or three weeks ago. Have about 25k words on it all ready. Get this, the main character is a girl and it's a comedy. Anyone surprised? Been distracted with some changes around here.


If a short story is a mouse, then the novel has to be a hulking beast. It's unruly, complex, detailed, fresh, original and compelling. Can I master the beast?

Details, details

I'll have to admit I get stuck in the details. But that's what makes a story great, right? Those little intricacies that the author sees that no one else has seen before. At least if the author is a good one.
