A few months ago as I was working on Novel, I decided that I wanted to get to know a certain secondary character a little better. This character actually doesn't appear until Novel Two but, you know, whatever. So I decided that I would write a short story to explore his background a bit so that I could a) get some more perspective on him when he does eventually show up and b) have something to distract me when Novel becomes frustrating.

I, optimistically, estimated that this story would be 5,000 words at most.

It's about to break 10,000. I'm still quite far from the end but, in an exciting turn of events, I do have it all wonderfully mapped. It's just a matter of getting it onto paper.

But damn it self, this thing might reach novella territory. And you know more about the character's love interest than you know about the character himself.

You, self, are doing it all sorts of wrong.
