Long Form

Today I started a new story for the third time. This time it sounds good, and I'm already bored by it, too.
1800 words of prologue done... And only now the real story starts.

Once it bores me I must remember to switch and introduce new trouble or a gag or something interesting. Fascinating. Something fascinating would be better.

I do that automatically with my short fiction. I don't know if it will be automatic with longer works, too. (Longer fiction is so earnest, to me. I've always had a hard time having fun with it.)
