Thank you for enjoying my story and for the suggestion! It is quite a compliment to me to hear that a story that I have come up with has enough potential to become a novel! I had considered turning it into perhaps a screenplay, but unless somebody was willing to collaborate with me on it, I will doubtfully ever do so. Unfortunately, my own physical disability makes it so that typing is exceedingly difficult and draining, which often limits how much and how long I can type without adverse effects (a truly sad thing because I am a verbose writer). For this reason, it takes me exponentially longer to type up a whole story than to think it up and I more often than not loose interest in longer projects before I even reach the halfway point in typing.
There is a bright side to typing being so burdensome, however! It forces me to polish and refine each aspect of a story, from overall plot to the structure and flow of each individual sentence, before I expel my energy in typing it. This makes it so that my first drafts are usually fairly close to what I am wanting and that very little must be changed for my final draft.
Thank you for caring enough to brainstorm ways to make it easier for me to write! I'm truly touched that you would take interest in helping me figure out how to write this story in a longer format!
No problem, I think the story could be much longer, as I already said. There are plenty of places you could elaborate on, like the back story of all the girls. I think that's what I would be most interested in learning more about
