Hello, lovely peeps, Doris here with my thoughts on series and how muses can frustrate not only us authors but also the readers.
I’ve touched on this subject before here, but it bears repeating, especially if you’re a panster like me.
I’m very, very aware that I have numerous series which still need completing, and yet, today sees the release of another new series, and I’ve had the acceptance on….. yep, you guessed it… anther new series.
*ducks the flying shoes*
I can’t help it, readers, I really can’t. As it happens I’m writing book two of the new series now, and then I will make a concerted effort to get to all my other series and add to them. I’m well aware how frustrating it must be when you, the reader, are waiting for the next one in your favourite series and the author goes off on a tangent and writes something else.
I can only speak for myself, but we don’t do it on purpose. I promise, we don’t. Well, I certainly don’t. I would love to be able to write a series in order, but it’s just not the way my muse works.
If it did, it sure would make my life easier. What I can promise is that all of my outstanding series will, eventually, be added to.
Now, I best get off here and carry on writing. Contrary muse permitting…
And big thanks to all my awesome readers.
Stay naughty, folks,
