Friends once asked me if I could write a novel. At the time of asking, I had no idea because I'd spent so much time doing contests, I had a struggle getting beyond 5,000 words.
Now, I could easily write a novel I think. I stopped my last novella - the story didn't end - at 35,000 words. The issue isn't can I do it? The issue is why?
After spending 14 months living and loving a novel, it's soul destroying to have to throw it way, but that is what I had to do with A Sailor's Love because despite several people saying they wanted copies, nobody bought one :(
