#1: With seven novels under your belt, does it get easier or harder to write that next one?
I’d have to say a little bit of both. Actual writing gets easier due to practice and experience. However, coming up with stories or, more specifically, story elements and scenes which are not repetitious from past novels can sometimes get more difficult. Vigilantism, even though it became more formalized as of the second novel of my series, remains the underlying theme throughout. Determining what crimes have been committed such that punishment must be administered can be a challenge at times with further novels. It can’t always be the drug dealer or the gang banger.
