Writing a Short Story vs a Novel

"When we look at story structure zoomed way out, as we do with a very short story, we can’t spot anything other than the beginning, climax, and ending. Everything else is so small it blurs together. Sometimes even the climax and the end blurs together and becomes the same event.
But at the length of a novel, we’re zoomed close enough to see that the beginning itself has its own beginning, climax and ending. Smaller peaks and valleys form between the beginning and the climax of the novel."
