I haven’t done this in awhile. I’ve been working on a novella for the last several weeks. Actually, it was supposed to be a short story, but I’m terrible at staying within word length. So far it’s at 10k. It was inspired by a friend who wanted stories set in a museum. I came up with a few ideas, but nothing really stuck at first until I decided to play to my strengths and make it have a paranormal twist instead of trying to write a contemporary.
