When I began writing The Nightmare Plague, it was going to be a series of short stories or even novellas. Later I began to imagine a series of longer works, with Barnabus, Marley, and Bilal being the central characters of their respective books. There was also a thought I would have made progress towards this goal by now and the upcoming stories revealing the truth about the bears being the conclusion of book one or two. Now that this point is within sight there is a sensation of secrecy. A desire to stop completely until longer works are completed. However, I desperately desire to move through this point and advance the story. Thoughts?
