Evolving Stories

It’s always interesting to me how stories evolve and take on a life of their own.  I always intended “The Thief’s Two Jobs” to be a short story, 17k words or so.  Had an idea where I was going to submit it but then as I got more and more into it, I started to realize that what I had envisioned as a short story was really only the first half of the overall story and that first half could end up being longer then the seventeen thousand words.  That amount just wouldn’t do it justice.

So what started out as a short story is now becoming something much more. And like the other novels in the Taleweaver’s Song, it introduces another aspect of the world of Merelein.  Now it’s a race to see which will be done first: Two Jobs or The Orc Plains.
