With my current Austen-Inspired Regency Romance less than a chapter from being completed, why do I find myself scribbling down a short story that keeps sneaking additional ideas into itself, not to mention an original character?

It’s good news for the readers, though! I’ve posted my short story, Storm About His Love, on AHA. Check it out!
