Why did you write Mara and Miyuki as novellas?

 

I believe that a story can be told concisely but still told well. Writing these stories as novellas made me consider each word on the page, and the words really needed to fight for the right to be there. It forced me to edit down anything that was taking away from the story that I wanted to tell. For these stories, it was the right choice for my characters and for my story.
