Writer’s Block

Many of you might have noticed that there’s been a pretty big gap – comparatively – between books being posted. With June 1 being the scheduled release date for Book 4, that is nearly 5 months between each book, which is quite different than the 2 – 3 months before.

The simple reason is writer’s block. For me, what happens is that I get doubtful about what I’m writing, uncertain of where the story is going or where it should go. Even if I have a rough idea, I find it difficult to keep writing.

In those cases, what happens is that I start procrastinating. Mostly by reading. Which means a lot of LitRPG authors (and some wushia authors) have gotten a bunch of money from me in the last few months 🙂

But it does make me think that sometimes, we try to push out books too fast. I actually have recently had a bit more of a brekathrough on the book, so things have been flowing a lot better. However, if I had pushed it, I think the book itself would have been a lot worse than what it will be.

Sometimes, I think we try to push out books too fast. There are numerous (financial) incentives to keep pushing a book out every month, but I’d rather slowdown a bit and put out a better book.

Also, I actually want to enjoy my life outside of writing 😛

A Gamer’s Wish is published on Amazon

A Gamer’s Wish is now published on Amazon. Please do read and review if you enjoyed the book. It definitely helps sales!

In other news, I’ve removed the rest of the Adventures on Brad series from other sites and put it on Kindle Unlimited as well. My experiment with going wide is now over, and now I’m testing Kindle Unlimited sales.

Thus far, we seem to be seeing a few thousand page reads, but who knows if it’ll drop off. Hopefully not, since the few thousand page reads is better than what we were doing while wide.
