A few months ago, I began with a story. It didn't take long for me to decide that this was THE story that I wanted to build on. My goal is a novel. As of now it is a seven page novel. Is it a novella yet? Probably not. It is a growing short story. I've recently added this beginning for a bit of a premise:
"I should probably tell you why you are receiving this letter full of my high school experiences that are inconsequential to your life. When we were nine, I was given your name and address to be paired up as a pen-pal. You wrote me, telling of your adventures of caring for your pregnant cat. Needless to say, I never wrote back. I found your letter while packing my things to leave for university, so here is my reply. I hope you still live here. Did your cat have the kittens yet?"
Still adding things bit by bit... Going pretty slowly.
Thanks for reading!
