I have been stressed out with the move and other things. While I have been writing it’s been more of a “have to” than a “can’t wait to,” and I hate that because I love to write. This is also my profession now so I cant have those days, weeks or months of trying to get myself into finishing the story. Well, last night I felt the depression lift, some of the stress diminish and my ideas for writing came back on a “oh that’s good,” type of feeling. It came back with a new story idea, something fun, kind of sci-fi meets fantasy and romance. I think it will be a short story. It doesn’t really fit in a series as there is no time travel (yet) and it’s definitely not suspense romance so none of my other stories fit it, but I love the idea and it’s fun so I started writing it last night. I am very close to four thousand words into the story and I’m having fun with it.
I also thought of an idea for a story that would fit into the Special Ops series in the Witness Protection segment. The thing is that segment is already full with story ideas and I’m already working on the first book in the series. I am playing around with the idea of maybe writing this new idea into a story and making it the first book, which would make the book I’m working on now move to being the second book. I have to think about that before I make the decision though.
So with depression and stress back where they belong–depression mostly gone and stress lower than it has been for the past three weeks, I am back :). I’m ready to spend long hours writing and explore the fantasy worlds in my imagination. I feel better, and even though it took a while to work through some of the problems and see my way clear, I’m on the road to recovery and I am so ready to dive back into my writing. So there will be the scheduled book releases of the year, but also some in between books that don’t really fit in a series. These stories may be short story or novella length and of course they’ll delve into the multiple genres I enjoy reading and writing already including suspense-romance, science fiction with a hint of romance and even some contemporary romance pieces. There are so many stories in my head to write and I can’t wait to get them all done.
That’s all for this time. More Dish next week, same time, same place. Have a great weekend you all :).
