Do you want to be a writer or are you trying to write a book and believe that's where the writing process will end for you? Or maybe after the novel you go on to write other things? Or maybe you're already a novelist turning out multiple books and on a regular basis. One book can become famous and there are authors that never publish another book like To Kill a Mocking Bird. I know another book by her was put out not to long ago, but that was a draft of To Kill a Mockingbird, if I'm not mistaken, which just shows how much the author played and reworked her story. That was her story. Other authors have books coming out all the time. I don't even know how people can possibly put out a book a year. I don't even want to think about how little progress I've made on writing my novel compared to them. But I'm writing differently, maybe. I'm not in a rush to finish. I've gone back and rewritten and reworked it. I make changes along the way with what I'm working with. The story does continue to grow. I am progressing and that word count is going up. I have no reason to believe I won't finish it. It's just this will be the second novel I've written. The first was stupid and rejected from everywhere accordingly. I would like to believe I am a better wrier now. This is a better story. I want it to be published. If this novel is published I would hope I write another, but what if I don't? Even if I become a prolific novel writer there aren't more than four or five stories like that in me tops. Actually, I would be amazed with myself if I produced that many novels. How many novels do you think you've got in you? I think it would be interesting to hear where we're all coming from on this. A lot of people on here talk about series and sequels. I would be happy being a one-time novelist, though, I would always continue writing in other forms. Is your book THE ONE or one of many?
