It seems like quite a few writers I've known like to complain of how hard it is for them to write shorter works. "It was going to be around 3000 words," they'll say. "But I just couldn't stop."
This is not me.
I have a problem writing longer works. I love writing beginnings, and I love writing endings (particularly endings, they're my favorite part. I usually can't wait to get to them). I have some trouble with the in-between.
I am determined to get over this, and so I will write something longer in the lovely month of May (longer here being defined as 8 to 10 k). I have the idea for the story (it has been inspired by the lovely doggies I work with), and have been plotting about it, and I think it will work best as a longer story, and not one I've smushed into under 3000 words. So I shall write it. I will. Starting sometime shortly...
