Insane numbers

I was reviewing my files earlier tonight for the novels I've written (but not published) and by looking at the dates, realized from early Oct 2010 - July 2011, I wrote 16 novels. I'd always summed it up in my head to be a year, but now that I look at it, I was cranking out close to 2 novels a month.

And we're not talking short novels, but some of them were well over 100,000 words. The only thing I can attribute to this amazing feat, aside from the fact I'd stopped writing for several years and the dam broke free, is that I created a world that became my playground. It's not an easy thing to do, and once I laid down the foundation for the Breeds, I began to develop rules and gave a lot of thought to the politics, social hierarchy, and then focused on the meat of the story.

The Mageri world became my crack, a world I'm still passionate about writing in because there are so many unexplored avenues.

Anyhow, that was my random post for the evening. I'm just a little blown away by those figures. I wish I could publish them as fast as I can write 'em, but that's the way this process works. A total of three books are already written in the Seven Series, and I'm itching to get started on the fourth!

Mageri crack. Get some.
