Man I would love to write a short novel. The only thing is that it takes a long time. First I need an idea. Then it's has to make sense. Then it has to be interesting. Plus, it has to have a lot of dialogue otherwise it would be like a narration. I have a couple of short stories that I have completed, but they still need to be edited. They both have some mystery and drama in them and apparently have a similar theme too about someone disappearing. But they are different stories with different things happening.
Recently, I was working on a story about a this group of friends who graduated HS. One day they found that they were being scapegoated by someone who spread a computer worm and had to find out who it is and clear their name. Meanwhile, this other teen who is younger, had insomnia and needed to get help with it. And the same person who was messing with the group, was also bothering him. Later, the group found that the suspect was a messed up student from the same school. I wanted to finish writing it, and then I couldn't find the notebook that I wrote it in. Oh well. I can write it over I guess. But I don't remember exactly every detail that I wrote. And so it will probably be different which is probably a good thing I guess because it needed editing anyway. Or I might not write again, depending if I'm still in the mood to write it.
