Me: "I had the instant reaction of "but I don't write short stories!" and then I thought, well, um, maybe I do?"
The original plan for Shayara was to write a novel, then a short story collection, then a novel, then a short story collection...
But, y'know, de Lint did originally write Newford in short-story form before he started writing the novels.
I am like all kinds of pondery now.
ADDENDUM: swisscheesed is okay, she's just taking a well-earned break.
ALSO: cissa told me that she likes the sparseness of my writing style. Not that I've ever viewed myself as having a style. But. I'd always viwed my sparseness as a deficiency in my writing. Maybe it's not?
