I have many short stories inside this fictional city i created. None of the stories will pan out to be a full length novel. Novella? Maybe, since i will spend a few extra time with developing the characters. But the story itself doesnt need to be dragged out. Now my WIP, follows 8 POV characters. Each POV (story) is written as a short story or Novella (since i will develop the characters more). The 8 POV characters story does not relate to each other nor connect to one another. Each short story follows different aspects of things thats taking place in these characters lives and in this city. Now the reason i want to put them all in one book because they all live in this city together and they stories takes place at the same time. Now i thought since they stories dont connect, i would have character interactions between the 8 POV characters. But im afraid that agents will look at this as a collection of short stories since they stories dont connect. Does this sound like a collection of short stories or can it work as a full length novel as long as the characters have interactions with each other?
