I know. In my previous writing update post I said it would be a novella. Well. I was wrong. I had written 3000 words when I realised I had forgotten one important difference between the outline for Cauldron Bound ( the novella) and Exile ( the Short story), namely that the middle of Cauldron Bound was compressed into ” they travelled and met clans, some hostile.” While the middle for Exile was more detailed.
I’ll admit that I was a bit relieved, since I had been trying to figure how the story would cover 17 000 words. I’m happy that I wrote the story, since it gave me an insight into how Jenny managed to leave Dhurig without being caught.
Now I’ll let it sit for a bit, while I focus on getting Daughter of the Dark ready for publication. But rest assured that I have plans for this story.
As a side note: I’m running out of stories to write in this world. I just have two story ideas left! ( Maybe three, if I can find my notes for the third one…)
