Something I woke up with in my head…
“My soul lies frozen, dormant and trapped within this shambling mound of miserable flesh from the very moment the light and warmth of yours escaped from this world. Oh how I long for the quiet touch of death, for my only wish…my deepest desire is that our souls may once again find their way home through the darkness, and that, if only for the briefest of moments, they might be allowed to touch…and to become whole once more.” – Duane L. Martin
I literally woke up with that running through my head earlier. I don’t know where it came from or what I was dreaming about that triggered it, but there ya go. It’s not from any of my books or short stories and I have no use for it other than to post it here for general interest value, but I thought it worked nice as a personal quote.
I’ve been saying for a long time now that the series is winding down. I have a few more ideas that I’d like to explore with it though before I end it entirely…if I ever do actually end it entirely. I think after I finish writing Invasion, which will be book 20 of the series, I’m going to take a break and write another book that’ll be entirely it’s own thing and have no connection to the series whatsoever. It’s the story about a girl who, after working a string of crappy convenience store jobs, goes to work as an assistant for a private investigator. There’s going to be quite a bit of humor in it, and I haven’t decided yet whether there’ll be a paranormal element to it or not. Right now I just have the beginning of it written, and it’s been sitting there collecting dust ever since. That’s why I think I’m going to go ahead and write that one after I finish Invasion, and then maybe come back to the series after that. Will this new one turn into a series of its own? I have no idea. I’ll just have to see how it goes. If it does, I may alternate back and forth until the Unseen Things series has reached it’s conclusion, whenever that happens to be. I introduced something in the last book that needs to be explored more, but Invasion isn’t the book to do it in, so we’ll see what happens.
Anyway, those are my plans as of right now, and are as always subject to change. If I do decide to put that other book off for a while, I’ll announce that once the decision is made, but as of right now, my plans are to finally get it written.
