Inspiration strikes and it hurts like a–

So I put writing on hold. Book 3 is done. The series is complete (except for the dang companion novel which could be awesome). Anyway, I decided to focus on getting an audio book up since I’ve had so many requests for it.

Then at a recent author event, I talked to a friend of mine about my plans and he said that he’d try to hook me up with the voice-guy who did his books. The man is open to shared revenue and is really good. If that works out then I don’t need to worry about it.

Hurray, time to focus on my family! I spent last weekend weeding and getting the garden planted. I played Axis and Allies with my son. A great weekend. Then yesterday, driving back to the office an image of flashing swords pops into my head and a name and the story begins to unfold in my head. Crap. I wrote it all down so I don’t lose it because it will be a fun story. But I didn’t want more inspiration! I’m taking a break! If anything confirmed that I’m a storyteller, this was it. And I’m both upset and excited at the same time. I was on a break!!

This is the Novel Mage saying, *POOF*
