Whether your kid is a newborn or near-adult, parenting is not for sissies.

Or, as Jason Robards said it so well in Parenthood: "There is no end zone. You never cross the goal line, spike the ball and do your touchdown dance. Never."

Don't give up! (Unless you suck.) 
 
What do you do to stay motivated when writing?

If you've always wanted to try #NaNoWriMO  but think you've missed the boat, there are still 26 days left in November. Even if you started tomorrow, you could still finish by writing just 2k words/day. Not that much more than if you'd started on Day 1.

Disney finally decided to make a movie of "The Snow Queen." Unfortunately, all it has in common with the fairy tale is... there's snow in it. And a reindeer. :/

I'm re-releasing a previously self-published short story (~6k words) next year with a small press. I consistently get two comments in reviews for it. (1) I wish it was longer. (2) I love the fast pace of the story.

Usually I get both  these comments in the same review. I'm considering expanding it to a novella or short novel before relaunch. My question  is, how do I expand the story without adding "fluff" and bogging down the action?

I was going to say, slightly snarky, "add a car chase." (Snark directed at critics, not you.) But you already have a chase.

Making anything longer without slowing the pace is a challenge, if not an actual contradiction. But how about humor? That squirrel might be useful.
