No need to fear…

Filed under: Writer's thoughts — michelle sodaro @ 7:04 pm

People always tell me they don’t know what to write about…that they have absolutely no ideas. The blank stare they get is genuine. What is that like? I wonder, horrified, that one day I will know — that one day the well will have run dry and I will be ‘GASP’ done as a writer. I honestly can’t think of anything more terrifying as an author than having no ideas…I mean, what would I do? How would I keep my balance? How would I stay just slightly on this side of sanity? Writing is my lifeline, my anchor (and ironically, my wings), and above all my salvation. I honestly think I have no need to fear though, because between the projects I have to publish, finish, continue, and start, I should be set for this lifetime and about 4 future lifetimes. Especially since every single book that I am working on has a sequel or series poking its head around the corner, saying “oooh…so I have an idea…”
Whatever you Make of it is going to be a series, thanks to my dear friend who read it and told me it was ready for publication…it’s going to be an interesting concept to play with the real world/book world as well as a unique commentary that perhaps we are all just characters in a novel.
Broken Trust already has a sequel started with it being Ali’s turn to find love. The title is going to be Redeeming Trust.
Arianna’s Honor is going to have a sequel, currently called Arianna’s Duty
And now, Crusin for Love is going to have a sequel, perhaps Still Crusin…that’s the newest thought and hasn’t really grown too much yet…but it will.
Not to mention Back on Track, my series has 2 first drafts done. Sweet eccentric Cassidy in the first one and Jo and Eddie in the second one. It has 2 more in the series (possibly a total of 7, we’ll see how it goes)
And those are just current projects…it’s not even taking into account the 13 novels I have postered on my wall that have been started, or the 5 nonfiction projects I have notes on…
yeah, I’m going to be at this game for quite a while…I have many things to fear in this world….running out of ideas is not one of them.



  1. One of your characters is named Cassidy. That’s my munchkin’s name. Nice choice and great song too.

    • Yeah, I like the name…and it really fits the character well. She’s a bit neurotic…as the best people are!
