I’ve been working on the outline for the third book in the Dragon Keeping Chronicles, to follow up The Wanderer’s Guide to Dragon Keeping and Once a Wanderer.
I’ve been wanting to write this book for two years. The basic idea for it came when I was writing Once a Wanderer, but I just never seemed to have the time. I’m a full-time freelance writer, and my clients have always come first. I kept thinking I would take a few weeks off during the summer or write my books in the evenings, but it just wasn’t happening.
Finally, it is. What seems to be working the best is to set aside the first hour of every work day for my own writing. This means that I continually make progress on my work (even if it’s not quite as much as I would like) and that I always look forward to starting my work day.
But something else is happening, too. It seems that the more time I take for my personal writing, the more I want to write! I’ve outlined a completely unrelated story and jotted down basic story ideas for at least three more. And while I’ve been working on my third dragon book, I realized that it’s quite possible there may be a fourth installment. At the very least, I have some preliminary notes.
While I can’t say too much without giving things away, I’m just pleased to say that there are more stories in the works! Make sure you find me on Facebook to stay updated!
