I am writing a short story, and my characters have taken over. I am fascinated with what is going to happen in their lives and how the characters will respond (I do not have a set plot planned). Now, I think it will end up being novella length. Anyway, it follows the lives of two distance runners as they finish their collegiate careers (D1) and move into the next stage of their lives while still pursuing their passion for running. My question is what you all think about having two protagonists? I began with one character who resembles me, but now I want to also follow the parallel story of the other character. I am not the most experienced writer, so any input will be greatly appreciated!
