Hello everyone I hope you are doing well!
So I thought I would come on here and and ask for a bit of advice with regards to a short story I just finished.
As I was writing it, I fell in love with the main character, although he is not somebody I would ever wish to encounter in real life. He is a very complex character and the story itself ended up being around 3500 words. However when I finished the first draft, I wasn’t satisfied.
I intentionally left the ending open and there is definite room to expand this story into a book.
That’s where you come in.
I’m not sure whether to keep it as a short story, post it to my blog and call it a day. Or whether I should try to expand it and tell the whole story. Maybe I could even do both?
I’m really not sure.
It’s a very dark story that is quite troubling but the main character is strangely likeable. He seems too good of a character to end his story there.
What do you think?
Please let me know in the comments any advice you may have.
