It's all about perspective
So hubby and I went out for breakfast this morning to the local A & W and we got to talking about writing, which is going to happen from time to time because we're both writers. I was saying how I plan to write one more Tapestries book, but that I'm finished with the Legacy series for now.
"I have nothing left to say in that series," I foolishly said.
"What character do readers ask about most?" hubby asked.
"Damek," I replied. "And his book is coming out in October." I hesitated and said in a small voice. "They ask about Craig too, but it's a paranormal series and he's human."
"Think of what it's like for him living in that world among all those other extraordinary creatures while he's human."
"Hmm," I replied, fearing I heard the creak of the wheels starting to turn in my head.
"He's living on the fringes of that world without really being a part of it," hubby continued.
I guess it's all about perspective and hubby's comment started an entire conversation in my head and before long the ideas were flowing. We talked a while longer about other things, but as we left the restaurant I turned to him and said, "Damn you, now I'm going to have to write Craig's book."
The storyline is churning in my brain. I won't get to it until December or January at the earliest as I have two other books that HAVE to be written first. But then...then I think I'll revisit the Legacy series and Craig Lawton. Turns out, I only thought I was done with this series.
