I couldn’t fall asleep, so I looked through my folders of series to see what I wanted to work on. I now have 67 series going simultaneously. Ooops. So I wrote 9,000 words in Sleeping Beauty, next up in my fairy tale series.
Problem is, I first had to re-read all 3 books to remember all my convoluted plot lines and characters … this is the downside of my write-what-calls-to-me technique :).
I’m always amused when I get requests from people who say “Oh you should write an epic story set in Arizona” or “you should write a literary novel set in Montana” or “you should write about this specific person from history”. I’m already working on FAR more than I can handle. I have readers actively asking for more books in the series I have, written in my current existing style.
The last thing I need is for people to think up even more topics for me to tackle :). I need to focus on finishing the ones I have already in play.
If you guys want to write stories on other topics, you should definitely write about them! I donate most of my proceeds to battered women’s shelters. You can donate most of your proceeds to battered women’s shelters. If we got a number of authors to do this, all writing about our own different topics, think of the number of people we could help!
