After multiple medical interruptions, and just plain life issues that we all have to deal with, I'm back to my next WIP.
'The Ballad of Bejus Fine'.
It's not a SciFi or ghost story or paranormal romance. It's a plain ole literary fiction, based in the Panhandle of Texas where I was born and grew up.
I chose to write this one because I need to stretch a little and improve my 'world building' beyond space ships and evil, ugly, alien invaders. ;-) I need to write a story that has real human drama. I need to to show myself that I can. And, of course, to show you that I can.
I love my books, all of them. The 'buddy' SciFi spoof series , 'Arlo and Jake', has been an absolute gas to write. My readers have been awesome with their reviews and comments. I'll be writing more in that series as my Muse releases more cool story ideas. But I need to add some depth to my writing. Some human depth.
So. What do you do when you need to 'switch gears' for awhile?
Do you switch genres? Take a sabbatical? Pour two fingers of White Horse and ponder the Universe?
I'll keep you posted on my progress.
Be cool, everyone.
