There is an inverse relationship between ambient noise and my level of productivity. As noise increases, my productivity goes down. My apartment building is under construction. They are replacing the roof. Or dropping elephants onto it. Hard to say for sure, based on the noise.

In other news, I tried to start in on a short story today, and the silly thing thinks it wants to be a novel. This is a new problem for me. Until recently, I tended to write everything pretty short (stories averaging 3k). Now I’ve developed more of an interest in world building and theme exploration and other such things. Suddenly everything wants to be a novel.
I’m going to try and write it as a short story anyway. If it wants to be expanded into a novel after that, we can negotiate.
