Novellas and Short Stories

I’ve been reading some articles lately about how it is becoming more common to find new independent authors like myself writing novellas to begin their ebook publishing journey. I gave this a lot of thought and came to the conclusion that this would be a great thing to try. After all, I keep rewriting the same book over and over. The plot remained mostly the same except for the time I rewrote half of it.

So, for a new resolution, I’m going to be using the same characters but writing an entire new story for them. Since I’ll be doing novellas (at least to get the ball rolling) I can tell smaller stories about individual characters instead of having to focus on a big threat to most of the characters.

It occurs to me now that I may actually have a few half-written novellas that I could polish up with some extra scenes. I hope I’m not too horrified at reading my own stuff from years ago.

I’m really excited to begin this new endeavor.
