A nugget of wisdom I found in a book I am greatly enjoying.
Talking about a short story published in 189, the author says she used it to “get a feeling” for a setting she’d later develop in a series of novels, and to try and develop the kind of character that would later appear in one of those novels.
It’s a scheme I heartily recommend. Get paid developing the ideas for your novels!
Indeed, it seems to be an excellent idea, and I have used it in the past, without really knowing.
I’ll have to write more stories, and use them to explore a few of the ideas I’ve here simmering.

I do it ass about – I launch into a whole novel (or series) then think of short stories for certain characters to engage in later 🙂

That’s something I do too.
