Work of Fiction

This blog contains some posts from a fictional character in a trilogy I am writing. She is not real and she is not based off a real person. Thank you.

So the final book in the series is coming along.  Writing as the muse sees fit, occasionally she decides to take a break and hides in the shrubbery but that is okay.  I am a little over three quarters done writing it, and will hopefully make my goal of completion by the end of June which means I should hopefully have it available to all of you by the end of July!

The hardest part of all of this is the face I am not getting enough reading done.  I absolutely love reading, and there are several books out that I really want to read but I just do not have the time.  One book I am dying to read is Warbirds of Mars: Stories of the Fight!  A good friend of mine had a hand in this book and I am really curious to dig into it, but I have three books in line ahead of it and all need to get done ASAP.

I'm considering taking a break from writing after the trilogy is complete, just to catch up on some of my reading, but I am not sure how good of an idea that will be.  Maybe I will just lower my daily writing goals after this one is done.  Take my time on writing the next book so I can have some 'me' time.  Or maybe create a plan where I write less on certain days so I can get some reading in.  {shrug}  Who knows. 

I know that as a writer I should be cranking out the books, writing until wee hours of the night, losing sleep.  That's not for me though.  I've never been one to follow the herd.  Will it hurt my sales?  Will I lose followers?  Who knows, but I do know that I am not going to push myself past my limits just to crank out books. 

So, there it is in a nutshell.  Book three is almost done, I am working at my own pace and happy with where things are going.  Hopefully you guys are happy with it as well and willing to stand by me.  Have a wonderful day!
