My Writer's World- goals

large open bookAKA why am I doing this?

I’m still on my convoluted journey around the US, using my time as a gypsy to explore new locations, to spend time with my family, and to think about what I want the future to look like.

You know, asking myself what do I want to be when I grow up? 😛

It turns out, I want to be a writer.

But after two years of publication, and, well according to Goodreads, 29 books (including freebies) there are finally some defining terms for ME that are fitting into the picture.

I want to write the best books I can. That does mean that what I write now is different than what I wrote three years ago when I started. There are so many lessons I’ve learned, in terms of editing, and plotting and just how I spend my time online. And occasionally the lessons have settled in, and then six months later, have to be relearned because my life situation has changed, or my writing style or…

Nothing is static.

So, in terms of goals? What does that mean for me? At this point in time, I can honestly say I am writing the books that I want to write.  I’m not writing to the “market”, I’m not trying to see what new boundaries I can push, except in terms of writing better stories. More character development. More emotion when called for, more humor when that’s the ticket. Not all my stories are going to be for everyone~ heck, the fact I write both paranormal and contemporary means that right off the bat some people will shy away from some books.

But even after all those books I’m having more and more fun because the stories still thrill me. The fact I make more sales on some books and less on others? Nope–not an issue, because frankly the readers who like book A and the readers who like book B don’t care about sales. They care about the characters. The story, the chance to enjoy a getaway.

And I enjoy writing them all. The sarcastic wolves, the adventurous contemporaries, the red-hot mystical shifters, the sexy sexy cowboys…

I think that is a GREAT writer’s goal…because when you write what you love, that passion comes through and makes a good story a GREAT story. And a GREAT story will always find it’s way to readers no matter what subgenre of romance.

People shy away from some of your books? Say it ain’t so! They don’t know what they are missing. I can remember when I first started reading your books, and Moira Rogers– right about the same time. I was so excited because you had everything I loved in a story– humor, sexy couples, adventure and the BEST heroines. I’m so glad you decided to become a writer:)
