Thoughts from inside the world of The Diamond Rose... I've been looking for cave entrances that look innocent or intriguing as they feature a lot in this story... some are inter-dimensional gateways while others are used for refuge or to hide something else.
The hardest part for me while writing is working out how long a story should be... Do readers like the longer stories 70 - 100K? Or - Do you, the readers prefer the shorter Novella length 15 - 30K?
Also another question that plays on my mind so much is: Why do most publishers want American English? I know not all do, but it's frustrating as hell when you write in British/Australian English.
Since the whole first quarter of my year has been a chaotic mess; I'll have to go through and re-work my WIP Schedule.
