Me not writing?.... Yeah, right!
In fact, the FIRST novel is the longest novel I have ever written (and this has not, and may not ever be edited). I just kept writing it till it came to a conclusion point, because there was still more story to tell. So I decided to write a sequel. In that one, the main character is nothing like me really. I mean, she's still the same person, but her life has evolved in a major way, I see none of me in her. The first one was the love story between her and the celebrity. In the sequel, her sisters are all main characters. In total, there are SIX main characters. Whew!
I get so involved with my stories and the character, I just want to write about them forever! Well, in this concept, the sisters, known as "Six Sexy Ass Sistas," were just begging me to flesh them out. All of them so different. They all demanded my attention, so hence the sequel (to a book that will never be).
But anyway I love writing just to come up with crazy stuff. I still plan on doing a writing challenge in September and doing NaNoWriMo in November, so that will be two new story ideas. I have millions of them in my head, trust me on that, just don't have the time to write it all.
That's why I would love nothing more than just write all day and publish 3-4 books a year and live off that. My dream! Or sell one a year and be a big shot and make that much money! I mean, Terry McMillan doesn't put out a book a year. Heck, not even two years! Must be nice.
