I’m working on the next Scene already and I think it’s going to be a fair bit over the usual 1000 word mark. ‘Eglė’ already hit ~1600, going into more detail than I thought it would- and that is of course great. But this is the same ‘problem’ I’m having with Delphinium- the initial thing (Larkspur, or some of the first Scenes) were short and almost abrupt. Now that I’m starting to get into a groove I begin to write more and take longer.
Depending on how detailed I get with this Scene I’m thinking of putting it up on Amazon as a story as well. That was actually the original goal of this Scene, but I didn’t think I could stretch it to 10K when I started (which I felt was a minimum for a short I put up on Amazon) but now…
We’ll see. I may do the same thing I did with Eglė- write the one literal scene here and let the rest be used in a ‘whole’ story that expands on things. But similar to ‘Vows’ this Scene may be an end that references the past, and the story may go into more detail essentially backwards.
This will be Scene 6 by the way. I’m hoping I’ll start to get more reads/comments soon and perhaps by Scene 10 I’ll feel good enough about this project to set up a Patreon. It would bring in another level of involvement that would be really lovely. Perhaps I’ll wait until Delphinium is out, I do feel like I owe it to people to get that out asap. I got a tweet yesterday about someone waiting for it- and that was enough that I stayed up a good portion of the night writing ❤
