Today is Wednesday, May 28th, Day 3 of the #ArmchairBEA today!
Today is about - (just the beginning is copied and pasted from the Armchair BEA website)
"Expanding Blogging Horizons & Novellas/Short Stories"
What do you think about when you think about going beyond blogging or expanding your horizons? Is it a redesign of your blog? Have you branched out into freelance writing or even published a novel of your very own? Or, have you moved into a different venue like podcasts or vlogging? This is the day to tell us about how you have expanded on blogging in your own unique way.
Now it is time to give a little love to those little stories in your life. Share your love for your favorite shorts of any form. What is a short story or novella that doesn’t get the attention that it deserves? Recommend to readers what shorts you would recommend they start with. How about listing some short story anthologies based upon genres or authors?
There is a 160 page Novella by Colleen Hoover called Finding Cinderella. That was a nice book, a fairy tale sort of book. Many people loved it, her diehard fans, such as myself! There were also others who did not like it at all, but they did not understand the reason WHY she wrote it.
This book was a teaser, a fairy tale of a book meant for her diehard fans. She was not trying to move mountains and write a piece of literature to stand the test of time and fight to win book medals, etc.! It was FUN! Others picked it apart instead of opening up and just enjoying it. I was pretty sad when I came across such negative people who were so upset about that book. I just ignored the negatvie myself. I like the positive anyway!
Sometimes there are just those books that are meant for FUN! ENJOY THEM! HAVE FUN WITH THEM!
Give Novella a try! They ARE worth it!
