Writerly Inspiration?

June 2nd, 2009 (09:12 am)

current mood: artistic

Early this morning, while lying in bed not sleeping, I suddenly had an inspiration for a short story I've been writing, on and off, for years. Off, lately. Really, I hadn't touched this story in months, so it's odd that it would come to me like this, out of the blue.

Remember, I am not a short story writer. I always wrestle with the structure, and it usually pins me to the mat. Give me a nice long novel to write, any day.

This morning, I understood for the first time just how this problematic story should end. I also realized that my protagonist is Latina. And that my short story is probably going to end up as a novella.

Now to finish writing the thing.
