I’ve just published my fourth book. Yes, four. I intended to write one.
Why did the story grow?
a) Because I like to talk a lot?
b) Because I needed something to do?
c) Because I became addicted to the computer?
d) Because the story took over, the characters demanded more time and attention.
The correct answer could be all of the above, but my answer would be “d.”
What do I do now that the series is completed? I’m not quite ready to start a new novel, but I do have a couple of ideas up my sleeve and if they grow the way my story did, I’ll be tied (happily) to the computer for a long while to come.
