One of the first fantasy authors I read was David Eddings. I enjoyed his books, and went on to read more fantasy.
2-3 years ago, I reread the Elenium books and I still liked them. Between those two times I had begun to write my own books. As a result I really, really wanted to write romances featuring the other knights. Except I didn’t have any wish to write Fanfiction. So I abandoned the idea and wrote other things. Until yesterday when it occurred to me that I could take the idea and set it in one of my own Worlds.
Which was enough for my brain to say Oh lets do that now.
Which isn’t going to happen since I have edits but I think it will be my “write for fun” book this summer.
