A couple of weeks back I posted a small excerpt from my novel each day. Each one was centered around a different key character in the book. I have been thinking this week of doing something like that in short story form.
We have all seen these movies that have directors cuts. These are pieces added back into the film after the production company eliminated them for time or content.
Well, the same thing happens with novels. Mostly due to content, a chapter gets a little wordy, or starts to become an information dump. But sometimes there is information that is interesting but not necessarily needed for the story to move on.
With that in mind, I have been knocking around the idea of turning a couple of these cuts into related “shorts” maybe offering them with the book or here on my blog.
As always, I’d love to hear what you think. Happy writing.
