I wonder, do all authors have half finished stories cluttering up their hard drives, or is that just my specialty? For the most part, I'm glad that I've kept an archive of my past endeavors, although it can certainly be a bit disheartening at times.
A couple years back, I decided to participate in NaNoWriMo, and began a story I eventually called Inkrah's Choice. When November ended, I had written eighteen chapters, fallen short of the NaNo word count by something like five thousand words--writing under pressure hasn't ever been my strong suit--and was left with a story, like Future's Path, that periodically seized my attention and demanded to be finished.
So, I'm bowing to the inevitable, and finishing Inkrah's Choice as well. As with Future's Path, I'll start by editing what I have, and then add new content until it's all done. How many chapters will there be, and how long will it take me? Dudes, I have no idea!
Before anyone asks, no this doesn't mean that I've given up on writing a sequel to Future's Path. I want a break from Gavin and Elena's world however, so that when I do return, it will inspire me with lots of new shiny ideas, instead of just being a repeat of their first adventure. Right now, I need to think about something completely different for a while.
My thanks to everyone who has expressed interest in my next writing project, as well as those who have continued to send in feedback about Future's Path. I'll update here once I have more to report.
