The original detailed TDD description in Beck's TDD Explained book mentions changing test granularity depending on general confidence/momentum and calls it "switching gears". Think of it like changing gears on a bike; if you git a tough hill you can always work in smaller pieces until you gain momentum and then work in larger pieces.
I generally recommend people start with that book rather than most of the confusing descriptions that came after.
