keep on writing - musings....

Yeppers, that's right! Love's Winsome Warrior is being released next month, on the 1st of June, in ebook and trade paperback. But of course I'm excited, I'm always excited with every new release!

I think that's the thing with writing -at least for me. Even with 16 books and several short stories in anthologies, I still get excited with every contract that comes, and every new release.

It's not always easy writing. It can be frustrating, hard, nail-biting, as well as rewarding, easy and fun, depending on the mood of the writer (me) and the tone of the story. Many are the times I've wanted to kill off the characters because we're fighting (yet again) or the story just isn't flowing. And just as equally, many are the time I've laughed and felt sooooo good because it's all working so well!

But you know what keeps me going? It's several things.

1. My readers - knowing they love the stories and are waiting for the next installment (huge reward for me in terms of warm feelings and satisfaction of a job done well)

2. I genuinely do love my characters, both the good and the bad!

3. I love watching the worlds unfold and enlarge with each story.

4. Writing keeps me off the street and out of trouble. Well, off the street, anyway. The trouble part is debatable LOL

So no matter how hard it gets, I keep forging on. For me and for all of you.

Congrats! Wow 16. If I ever reach that I hope I'm as enthusiastic. Although, I have a feeling I will be.

Congrats on the new release, Angela! And, great post! I'm always excited when I start a new story and it usually lasts through to the end but, I confess, the excitement begins to fade a bit when the revisions start, lol
