I've been reading a lot of short stories and novellas lately, and I've also been kicking around a few ideas for my own novella with the Hostage Negotiation Team series. The thing is, I can't decide if I really want to do it.
Some novellas I've really liked and felt they were fleshed out enough to make a good story. Others I've felt a bit cheated with, like it wasn't really done somehow. There seems to be a fine line between characters and story in a novella that authors have to look out for and some do it right, while others don't. I can't decide if I really want to try or not.
So, tell me what you think. Do you like novellas? What draws you to them or makes you pass them by?
