And the 10,000 to 14,000 word stories from Goodreads

There’s mine, in the blue!!  Getting excited, and nervous. It’s the usual “What if they hate it?” multiplied by the 10,000 members in the group. At least with a publisher, only one person sees how much you suck.

Working on the steampunk today, but planning a bit more for Furface. Looks like there’ll be another one after Furface too–I ended up splitting out a plotline, or the thing would have been too big. And, to be honest, it makes for better stories this way.  I’m enjoying how fast the werewolf story feels like it’s going, as compared to the steampunk. I know part of that is the length, but part of it too is the amount of stopping to look something up I have to do with the Boyler Room Boys. Not complaining–it’s part of the attraction of writing, the chance to follow whims of curiosity. But every time I stop to look something up, I feel guilty because I’m not making new words.

Dumb kitty, silly kitty, fluffy little…..
