When It Rains, It Pours

Weeks of doctors' appointments have brought us even closer to a final answer on what's causing my son's condition. Last week a close family member suffered a stroke, and now she's on the long road to recovery. And now I'm waiting for my own appointment to find out what's going on with me. When it rains, it pours. Luckily, I have an amazing wife and children to keep me focused.

Now to business; I have a rather sneaky suspicion that the novella is turning into a novel. Darn! Just kidding, that's great, because now I have much more to play with! Isn't imagination fun? I had hoped to pen a novella, but it's cresting to a greater vastness that is, the novel. No worries, I have many more ideas in the works. It will be some time until I begin weaving those tapestries, as I'm having an incredible amount of fun with this morphing novella. It's a type of fiction I never really thought I'd write, but it's fun as hell.


  1. I've tried to write short, even succeeded a few times - but my ideas always expand and end up with too many characters to be anything but a novel :)

    so sorry for all the health issues - hope things get better in that department.

  2. Sending positive thoughts for your family, especially your poor son.

    Glad you're enjoying the writing project. They do tend to have a will of their own sometimes. :)

  3. Glad to see you're keeping on. I had a feeling that this project would be too big for a novella. It's a novel length worthy storyline - so I think you're making a good decision. But will you get me chapter three already? lol.

  4. mshatch- those are the only explosions in my life that I enjoy. Thank you for your thoughts.

    LGS- Thank you so much, he is doing very well; he's my little stormtrooper. I love this writing project.

    Nadja- I appreciate your support. I'll talk to you soon about chapter three.

  5. Man, I'm sorry you're getting poured on. You're in my thoughts and prayers, especially your son. I certainly hope they figure it out soon. It's been too long already.

    That's great news about the morphing novella! Keep on keepin' on!
