I was bored at work today and doodling, by doodling I mean thinking of new plots and I had a random idea. It's an idea that's been floating around in my head for a while, but I usually just smack it down and ignore it because I don't plan on making it a full novel. I want it to be a novella.
Here's the idea;
It's a very rough idea and I don't really have any ideas to go with it. Though I'd like to write it with a Christian twist somehow. I am thinking of looking up a name for the young woman. I did also toss around the idea of writing this story for Camp NaNoWriMo in July. It might be a little easier for me since I'll be busy next month to only be writing 25,000 words instead of 50,000. I'm not sure about writing it as a novella. Some people believe that a novella has a negative stigma attached to it. It's not really a novel, so it's just a short novel. But there are some famous novellas, such as Animal Farm or A Christmas Carol. Night by Elie Wiesel is considered a novella and it's an amazing book!
A novella is harder to get published, but I believe it can be done. I'd like to try it anyway. A novella is described as have less conflicts than a novel, but more complicated ones than a short story. I think it would be done.
What do you think? Would you read a novella despite the length? And do you think I should try it? :)
