The worst question you can ask an author is about what they are working on next. It's not that creative people don't want to talk about what they are working on, but a huge chunk of creative work is often not what you are holding in your hands. The secret that artists, writers, and musicians are holding on to when you ask what we are all working on is that we are thinking (and living). It's not a romantic answer, so we just say some rehearsed thing and change the subject until we are ready to discuss our next thing. Our next thing involves a lot of staring into space and figuring shit out. Nobody wants to hear that, but that is what we do. Our heads are full of ideas and it takes planning -and fiddling- and futzing around to get those ideas out in a way that works. That is the fun of it! Like every great story, there is a beginning, a middle, and an end. The figuring shit out part is the middle and often the part people want to fast-forward through to get to the blockbuster ending.
I like the middle best, just like a custard filled doughnut.
