Short stories and novels

Life is full of amazing stories.

Some that we hear from other people, some that we read in books, or the best stories, your own.

Yes, I know nothing can top the one night you were so high on wine, you didn't even remember your mother's maiden name, great story. But what about your stories that you paid for a drama and stayed for a comedy?

You know, the ones where you were serious about something or someone and suddenly realised one day that this planned novel turned out to be a short story, not seeing that you're already busy writing a novel, but with another main character.

But at the end of it all, we figure it all out. Sometimes it's hard, other times we find it easy. And then we live with it. "Time heals everything" are words only comforting, because at the end of the day, it's only time passing by.

Something you can remember, it doesn't take one try to perfect something. You have to write a couple of short stories in order write a perfect novel. And every novel has a crisis and climax.

There can only be one...
