When you have an idea for a story, how do you know whether it is better told in a short story format or as a full blown novel?

Didn't you know that the voices in my head are very detail oriented?

But didn't you win an award for best micro-story?

Can a bunch of award-winning micro-stories be stacked on top of each other to create an award-winning novel?

Could some of your short stories be weaved together to somehow create a semi-coherent novel?

Did you know I once weaved several very short stories together to create an incoherent less short story?

Have you ever written sequels to any of your stories?

Would it surprise you to know that I have at least two in progress? (Does Blue Cowl count, or are those just chapters?)

Yes, they count!

Can you believe I actually enjoyed eating snails today? :eek:

Did you ever have escargot, and know how to pronounce it, before you went to France?

Does it make any sense at all that my one experience with eating snails in the US was terrible and yet I'd give them a try in France?

Did you think that France has better chefs or just better snails?

Could be both! (although I suspect better chefs)

Are there any exotic foods you're curious to try one day?

Have you ever come close to being bitten by a snake, or anything poisonous?

Do Zombies count as poisonous?

So if you've been bitten by a :zombie:, then clearly you've had a limb amputated. Which one?

Didn't you say "close" and not "actually bitten?"

Is it at all surprising that not being a careful reader has gotten me into trouble many times?

The time when I was 8-years old and threw a small rock at a kid, hitting him and injuring him. I felt terrible and my mother grounded me for a month.

What about you?

Did you really get bad grades as a kid? You seem too smart for that to happen.
