I have a serious dilemma I've been plagued with as of late. My most recent story, Season of the Witch, is finally winding itself down and I've really enjoyed writing it but suddenly noticed its actually taken me nearly six months to do so. This is by far the longest time its taken me to write a story.
I have ideas for more DRU stories but frankly I'm getting a bit bored with the idea now. I love the DarkRealms universe but I think---at least for me----its starting to run its course. I'm not closing the universe but I don't think I'm going to be an active participant in for a while. I am however debating what my next course of action should be. I was considering dropping universe writing altogether and going with a series of stand-alones. I have a few stories in the back of my mind that have been nagging to be told.
The only problem I now face is where to go next?
I think I might have another CRU story or two in me. I'm wondering if that's what people really want though. I stopped writing Retcon stories because I felt the universe was dying and I was the only one contributing to it. After some time off from it to reflect, I realized I was being an idiot. In truth I just got really bored with the universe. I've taken some time off from it though and I can honestly say I'm itching to get back.
So if I wrote another Retcon story, would you guys read it? Or how about some non-universe stories?
