Well, it's a start.
I've got three pages down of a new story, basically a scene and a half. Introduces the world, the basic framework, and two characters. What it does not give you is a plot. A goal. In fact, there may not be one. There may not be anything interesting my characters NEED to do, as opposed to simply wanting to do it. If this becomes anything, it may just be a short story.
And I'm OK with that. Despite having done three long tales, the shorter ones, even if they're linked short stories, take a lot less out of me, demand less commitment. I'm not in the mood to commit to two or three months of work.
So... well, who knows. Just thought I'd keep you informed.
