There seems to be a lot of changes happening to my writing, my writing business, blogging, and life lately as I try to correct mistakes that I feel I made or am making with them. Since I made an off-handed comment to Joleene Naylor on one of the Serial Story posts for Love is Blind, I’ve been contemplating what I really want to do with the story.
Love is Blind started out as a deleted scene from My Lord Hades that was written in Hades point-of-view. However, it didn’t push the action forward as more than a side note and the scene was discarded. I decided to brush it off and write a short story about Tarma for an ezine I was creating with a writer friend. Then life stumbled into the way and put the ezine on hold indefinitely. So then I decided to make the short story a free read for potential readers to sample.
Now that I’m nearing the middle of the edits I’m realizing there is more to the story. So the question is, do I publish it as is, or do I add to the story and see where it takes me? What do you think?
