Dean Wesley Smith, I sat down and outlined a novel.
I consider myself a short story writer and I've given little thought to writing anything longer for the moment. I feel I need to develop my skills at the shorter length before I attempt anything bigger. A novel not only means more words, but a bigger vision and world to write in. So I was very surprised at how I managed to get this exercise done.
And I was pretty happy with the result.
Not that I'm planning on working on this particular idea, but writing a novel no longer seems as unreachable as it did even two days ago.
And, I must say, Dean Wesley Smith is my new hero. If I could only convince him to come to Australia to run his Character voice and setting workshop here.
