One thing that worries me from time to time is how many books I still have waiting to be written. It’s not a complaint—I’m lucky to have such a fertile imagination that allows for a never-ending stream of stories. My worry is that the stream will never stop and some stories won’t get written. I don’t let it bother me for long, instead I get writing!
In the spirit of sharing more stories, I am now in a position to send the next manuscript to my wonderful beta readers for their feedback. Yes, there’s another book on its way! This one will be the fourth of the White Rose books, and while the title is pretty much set, I won’t be revealing it yet.
Tick, another story done bar final tweaks.
That then brought me to a dilemma. I have no less than three books I want to write next, but three at once isn’t a good idea. Can you imagine it? Three plots getting tangled, characters appearing in the wrong story, and the whole thing ending up a huge mess! In typical me style I decided on a story that had to be next and then promptly changed my mind. I think it helped that the one I changed to was already partially written—it gives me a direction to head towards.
Research has begun and plotlines are suggesting themselves, so it's all go here.
I hope your lives are moving in the direction you want, too.
