I write novellas. Most of my drafts ranges between 20-30 000 words. But the story I am working on now is something new for me. I haven’t decided if it is the first part of a longer serial or if it is the first in a series of short stories. Considering that I rarely write short stories and that I am not interested in serials as a reader ( I prefer to read the whole book) this is a first for me.
But considering that I have wanted to write more short stories next year, this is a good way to do it. Then there is other things to consider. Like, what happens with my sales if I get the story ready for publication, create covers, and then release the short stories rather close together? And then bundle it later ( maybe around christmas)?
Or should I create a Patreon account and serialize it that way? I have no idea if anyone would be interested, though. And then there is the VATMoss ( aka the headache inducing new EU rules from 2015). Right now I don’t have to apply, but I have no idea if that is still the case if I create a Patreon.
So, yes. There are a lot of things going on in my brain right now. I’ll focus on the things I know: that it is an interesting story and I am itching to write it all. I mean, it contains witches, dragons, a teleporting wizard and a shady villain.
