I write out of necessity. Not for money, or recognition, (not yet anyway), but I get a bug that forces me to throw up a story. My time to write is limited and my list of story ideas is long, but I can only work on one project at a time right now. So somewhere between family time, social life, exercise, video games and eating, I gently force some time to do this thing called writing.
To add to my long list, I recently came up with some fun short story ideas that take place in the Angst universe. I would really like to share a new one every couple of months between books. I like the idea of writing about characters other than Angst, to share more insight and background. Some stories will take place in the past, and some will be about what happens between the first and second book, but herein lies the problem. I’ve been bit once again, and the bug is making me work on the Angst 2 (working title).
This is a good thing, and I loftily hope that my second baby comes out a little easier than the first. It seems that once I start writing a project, I have to keep working on it until I’m done. As for the short stories, maybe while I’m steamrolling through Angst 2 I’ll be able to sneak them in between chapters.
Which characters would you like to learn more about?
