And so begins the final update of my second novel Life Is A Highway, as I've decided to move in a different direction with the contents that make up my second novel.
Essentially, I plan on publishing the stories (either commercial or more realistically, self-publish) as stand alone chapbooks. I've been spending the better part of year ironing out and fine tuning both my writing style and preferred story length.
The writing style is still a work in progress, but the story length has been ironed out to my satisfaction. As it pertains to my blog (and elsewhere in the future), the comfort level is around 5 pages (or about 2,000 words). As it pertains to other things, such as writing to get published, the comfort level will be at the 50-60 pages (about 18,000-20,000 words).
While I won't rule out writing novel-length stuff (I have several chapters written for novel expanding on my story A Betrayal of Vows that is currently gathering dust) in the future, I do want to concentrate on what I feel works best for me.
With that said, the updates will now be focused primarily on each particular long story that I'm working on at the moment. The current story I'm working on right now, is one that I've been giving everyone updates for the past couple of months on, which to refresh your memory is called A Lascivious Limbo.
As always, I thank you for stopping by my blog to read and to throw in the occasional comment. I appreciate each and every comment that is left, as I've picked up some great writing tips along the way.
