Occasionally I get asked a question by someone who doesn’t know me very well, or doesn’t know that I write full-time, or doesn’t really understand writing. They know I’ve written books, and so they ask, “Are you working on a book now?” I usually just say a simple, “Yes,” because it would take too long to explain everything that goes through my mind when I get asked that. Like, I haven’t not been working on a book since 1995. Most writers I know are always working on a book. In fact, I’m currently working on about six. Or even seven or eight. Depending on how you count. Writing the next one in the series, post-production on another, outlining and thinking about the next two, writing two more that aren’t in the series, thinking about sequels to two others, plus that dream project that I’ve been keeping notes on for eight years now and that I’ll get around to writing when I actually feel good enough to do the idea justice…
You get the idea. So yes, I am working on a book currently.
Oh, and my columbine are blooming.
