Expanding Short Stories
The other day, I mentioned that I was working on a short story I was calling "Voodoo Christmas." As I was fleshing out the concept, I realized a number of things. First, there are a lot of characters. Second, it's not so much about Christmas as it is about the year after Christmas, so there's also a long expanse of time involved. I've even considered it spanning a year. Third, it will just take a while to set up the plot, develop the characters, get things rolling, and tell the tale. Allow me to introduce the novella/novel Voodoo Christmas.
