Fire In the Mind

You know that feeling where it seems like your mind is firing a thousand times a second, where the ideas are coming so quickly that you can't jot them down fast enough?   That's where I am now.

I have a new project.  Yes, already.  I know, I finished a book on Monday, and already I'm knee-deep in another.  That's how I promised myself it would be this year.  I have no original releases this year, except for the first D.B. Jackson short story, "The Tavern Fire," which comes out on March 1 in the After Hours: Tales from the Ur-Bar anthology, edited by Joshua Palmatier and Patricia Bray.  Thieftaker doesn't come out until next year.

So this year is all about writing new stuff and getting it contracted.  I don't know how long it will take me to feel burnt out, but right now I just want to write.  All the time.  And I'm going to ride this wave as far as it will take me.

I'd write more, but I have ideas to explore.  More as it develops....

Thanks, Alis. That's great to hear. Always a little scary when you send a book to a friend -- scarier even than releasing to the wide world, at least it is for me. Glad you're enjoying it. Thank you for taking the time.

Good idea to keep riding that wave while it lasts! :)

Exactly, Mark. I always wonder if the ideas are going to dry up at some point. Until they do, I'll just keep working.
