After I am done with this book in the series I am working on, I am taking a break from that series. Three reasons.
One: I have to really plan out the last part of the series. That means (gasp) outlining!!!!
Two: A friend asked me, why stop with the current series you have planned? She is interested in some side characters. I might try work out some side stories on them.
Three: A fantasy story that popped in my head, is too much fun to stop with.
