Is good for the soul, or so I hear. I have to admit, I am sooo not a big fan of change. I wish I could be one of those people who lives for change, who likes when the powers that be shake things up, who can change their hairstyle 'just cuz."
But, even I need a change from time to time. My last few books (Tiger Eyes being the only exception) have been set during the Regency, although my McKenzie books are American-set. For the last eighteen months or so, I've been mostly in the Regency and even though I love the time period, I need a break from it. While I do have two more Montgomery books planned, I don't know exactly when I'm going to write them.
Instead, I've had an idea brewing for some time for an historical set in the Old West. About bounty hunters. It's a time period I don't know a whole lot about, but I'm definitely looking forward to researching. It's also a story I'm looking very forward to writing, as well. The American Southwest is one of my favorite places (I have family in Texas and New Mexico, although I don't get to see them much) and I love the idea of the 'Wild West'. Cowboys. Bounty hunters. Runaway brides. Oh, and a smartass, six-year-old orphan named Jack. It should be fun to write, if nothing else.
And change is good for the soul. :)
