The Novel

“I’m writing a novel.”

“What’s it about?”

“Everything!”

“Must be pretty long, then.”

“Not particularly, no.  Actually, it’s probably going to be very short.”

“Then why aren’t you done yet?”

“It’s hard.”

“Ha!  What’s so hard about writing a short novel?”

“Well, you try writing a short novel about Everything!”

The Sequel

He was in a sequel.  He knew it.

Everything that was happening had happened before, except that now, everything was bigger, almost overblown.  The stakes were higher, the consequences of failure more dire.

The shame of it was, even with everything more impressive, the result wasn’t any better.

Worse, actually.
