2013 Something new?

If you have several books out already, are you ready to do a pitcher type change up and toss something out with a different twist on the ball. A different genre. A different character. A different kind of hero. Who knows? It might light up (explode) your career.

By the way, I love baseball. Not so much to watch because you don't really know what is happening on the field until as they say, something does happen that you can see. But to play, to be in that pitcher's mind, where you are the clever cunning throwing rascal fighting a hitting, slugging monster that has lightening and thunder in his bat. Baseball movies more than other movies about sports show that cerebral planning, cunning, mental stress.

Except for the pitcher's mound, It is usually quiet out there on the baseball field with only that low level grinding conflict of strategy, and then everything suddenly lights up, and it is run and jump time. Explosion!

2013 isn't going to be that year for me - probably because I don't have "several books already out there", but also because I doubt if I will finish my current projects this year. But I do know that I've considered doing something quite different, some of the ideas I've been tracking are very different to what I've been actively writing.

What gives me hope that those ideas might come to something is that my current contemporary fantasy novels are nothing like what I used to imagine I might write ... which is probably a good thing.

Change is bad. We must all conform.

What? I have to conform? I'd better change.

I'll be satisfied just to finish the book I'm working on. But perhaps you're right. I might do a religious book, "Fifty Shades of Pray." Or maybe a ghost book, "Fifty Shades." Or a soft porn book, "Five Shades of Gray."
