So it's actually been a long while. I've been so busy with work and playing with series I wrote years ago that I haven't felt like I've gotten anything accomplished lately. I suppose I have, because I did write another story and for fun I put it in the Kindle Scout program. I'm second guessing that choice, just because I don't think I have the following or social media chops to make it work, but it probably isn't hurting anything.
Anyway, while I was working on my Avery Clavens and Nyx Slaughter series the last few months, I kept getting flashes of scenes from a new story and I slowly put it together while I was working on everything else. From the very beginning my characters were at odds with me, which doesn't happen often. Usually they just tell me what is going on and I agree.
In The Call, Nikki and Paul particularly decided to just do whatever they wanted. I blame them for taking forever to get the story out - it's almost impossible to get any work done when your characters can't decide their motivation and change first reactions when you're trying to write them.
I don't really have any more updates other than I'm moving on to a second book in that series, which wasn't planned, but my brain won't be quiet. I thought I'd get back to my Nightwalker, Daughter of Gaia and Argonauts series, but I have to wait until my brain stops telling me to write more about Nikki and the gang. I love new ideas and where they take me, sometimes they like to make my life difficult, though.
That's going to be it from me for now. I'll try to make sure to update more often and maybe I'll even start doing the weekly short stories again. Time hasn't allowed for them, and weekends have proven really busy, but I do miss writing short Nyx adventures.
