I'm working on the fourth book of the Magic series currently. Florian and Lucille always protest that they don't get enough time in the books especially Florian. I try to explain that it's an ensemble piece that does center around them, but sometimes there's no pleasing those two. I already have rough ideas of what I'm going to do in the other three books (as this is a seven book series). I like to have a rough plot sketch so that ideas can develop as I go along. Sometimes the story takes unexpected twists right away. I love that! It's what makes writing both exciting and frustrating, sometimes, but I wouldn't trade it for the world. I am in love with these worlds and these characters and I hope you are, too.
What amuses me is I already know the name of the sixth book but not the fifth. Sometimes the titles just come to me and other times it's not until I've finished the book that a good idea hits me. It's interesting how the creative mind works, and I won't pretend to understand, but I love the way I see the world and the interesting perspectives I garner even if sometimes no one else seems to fathom what I do.
