A few days after the release of my second novel, I thought I would be nice and relaxed, ready to take a break from writing so I can really concentrate on my upcoming job change. Time to start looking over the new charts, getting to know Michigan, finding a place to live, etc. While I AM doing all these things, I feel like I’m not doing enough.
Don’t get me wrong, I know I’ll be fine at work, I know I’ll find a place to live in time, I know I’ll enjoy where I’ll be settling (aside from the whole Michigan Wolverine thing), after all I get to be fairly close to home. But I still feel like I’m not going to be comfortable until this series I’m writing is complete. SO I guess a break from writing is not what happens when the dust settles. I guess the thirst only gets stronger. I wonder if when I finish the Statera Saga if I’ll finally feel like I can take a break, or if I’ll still feel this way because I have other book ideas in the works.
I’m starting to think writing can be addicting. These worlds keep building in my head and I need to get them out. With the world we live in today, it really is so much easier to try to disappear into some sort of fantasy.
On a side note, I want to thank everybody who took part in my release day! It was a good time, and I’m happy a few people were excited for book two. It amazes me to think, I can come up with a world of people and the story of their lives in my head, transfer that story onto paper, and plant that story into someone else’s head, making them hear and see the things I once dreamed.
I understand why famous authors say books are magical. In that way, they really are!
