"'We are empty and would be filled, he is full and flows over'" oi oi Mainly what I'm posting is creative writing exercises, unedited. I'm an absolute beginner and just trying to get the juices flowing! Any feedback is appreciated. 07/01/2010 A novella is a written, fictional, prose narrative longer than a novelette but shorter than a novel. The Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America Nebula Awards for science fiction define the novella as having a word count between 17,500 and 40,000. (Thats from wikipedia) Back when i joined in 2008 i could barely string a few hundred words together and now Taking the Temperature is around 14,000 words! Its a novellette approaching a Novella! I am actually quite proud of myself, considering I have a self destructive instict to sabotage anything I do thats creative. I am still very inexperienced and I really want to get better so I'd love some feedback, i don't care if it's critical. Thanks a million folks.
