Short stories taught me that sometimes I write from the intellect and sometimes from the emotions. When I’ve tried to write a novel from the intellect, I haven’t had the emotional involvement to sustain it. But I can stay intellectually involved in anything that’s coming from deep in my emotions. The long form, for me, will have to come from deep, untapped recesses of feeling.
