I Refuse

Only last blog I mentioned I was about to start a new novel, very dark themes, tons of research. I've still not started it.

I've started something else.

It's still dark -- I try, but I go for the darker themes, and that's just how it is. It's still going to need some research. But not what the other one requires.

I didn't make the choice consciously. I just couldn't write a damned thing on the book I intended to. Out of nowhere, this other idea said, "It's my time." And so it is.

So, I refuse to write something I don't want to at this time. (I'm able to say that right now. We'll see how long this resolution lasts.) I'm still writing an action thriller with at least three mysteries to solve. It's still got all the dark and terrible things people do to one another because they can. It's just a different one from the other one.

And, for now, that makes all the difference.

All the best,
C.W. Walker

Sad to say, it's the dark and terrible things people do to each other because they can that hold the readers' interest. Humanity overall is pretty dark, don't you think?
