I want to write a novel because... just because. I gives meaning and purpose to that part of the day, the week, the year, where you have nothing else to do. It's a challenge, too. Writing short stories is easy (not easier than writing a paper, though), but writing a novel... it's in another ballpark. And you end up knowing yourself by facing challenges and getting over them. Or under them. So novels are self-introspection devices.
