O is for Other (than Cassie)


I’ve wondered if I should I write something other than Cassie. I’m deeply into the Cassie series. Writing these books has been a dream – a fantasy of mine, for almost fifty years now. She came to me when I was just a kid and she was grown, nearly forty back then. We’re now MUCH closer in age. Until I began blogging, the thoughts of really writing this series was just a dream. I knew I’d never really write a book. I just enjoyed all the stories in my head.

The one question I’ve wondered about, but never asked -  should I should drop the series now and try my hand at other writing? I’ve written other spanking stories, but nothing book length. The reason I’ve never asked is that I worry many will jump up and yell, “Yes! Enough already! Try something else.” But since I really only have to answer to myself about this, and since I love writing about Cassie and Tom and the gang, I’m probably going to keep going for a while.

  1. Hey PK...even if you do decide to create other characters for a book, please don't stop writing about Cassie and Tom!

    Hugs and Blessings...

  3. PK,

    I agree with Cat and Blondie, keep writing more Cassie but why not try your hand at something else for you.

    Love,

    1. I do listen to my other characters, but somehow they always seem to find their way into Cassie's life.

  4. Something else would take time away from Cassie and Tom. How could you do that to them?

    1. Ha, they don't need me. They just go on living their lives.

  5. Hi PK, I'm with the others. If you did try your hand at something else I would hope you would still continue with Tom snd Cassie.

    1. I will continue with them. They're just part of me. I have visions of me in the rest home, sitting in a rocker, smiling slightly as Cassie tell me yet another story.

  6. There is not reason you can't do both.- now I look up at the other comments, obviously I'm not alone in this thinking,

  8. Don't ever stop writing about Cassie and Tom!
    However if you feel the urge to write something else do it too!

    1. I would never turn down a story that popped into my head, but Cassie seems to be taking most of my time.

  9. I empathize, PK- that's how I feel about my book baby, Vala's Story. When it comes to "non-Vala stuff," I've only finished short stories as well. The closest I've come is a menage-BDSM-ageplay with DD elements that's mostly 2/3s done thanks to Nanowrimo. But I have Thianna's "Open for Submissions" post open, to think on lol. My particular problem is the "write what you want/that speaks to you" advice when coupled with my struggle to sell books- you've been lucky on that account, with so many people loving Cassie and Tom, and not being scared by them like my story-verse

    1. You do understand Joelle. I'm so lucky with Cassie because I've been blogging for so long and writing her stories I think a lot of people know them well. I guess I'll keep writing her until I get tired of her. I think I better settle in for the long haul!

    1. I'd prefer to just write Cassie for a while.

  11. I think it's understandable to want to try something else, but so long as you always come back To Cassie and Tom, and let us know how they are doing.

    1. I'm not ready to change anything yet. I was just worried others were getting tired of her. I'm glad that they're not.
