Default Continue my main series or do something different?
So Iíve just finished the 25th instalment of my looner series. Itís been going on for a while now. I never dreamed Iíd write that many when I wrote the first one. Iíve been wondering if Iíve done enough and should move on to something else or whether to continue. Iíve done a few stand-alone stories which were a nice break. Iíve also been writing non fetish erotica. Theyíre getting pretty decent ratings on literotica which surprised me as itís my first time doing that sort of thing.

So if you enjoy my writing, what do you think I should work on? Keep the main series going, start a new one, or just write the occasional stand-alone story?

Iíve been uploading them all to my website if you havenít seen my latest works www.loonerstories.weebly.com

I’ll have to come up with some new interesting characters. I’m thinking about having two main characters with a few side characters like my current stories. It’s always best to have contrasting personalities I find. So one will be more dominant and the other more submissive. Not sure what one to have as the lead character though. I’ll have to have a think. Any ideas are greatly appreciated.

I’ve gotten an A5 sized note book full of recollections based around real life experiences with ex’s and a distant female friend I knew way back in the 80’s involving inflatables and balloons. I’ve often thought about posting a few of these accounts but have never got around to doing so yet. The main reason I wrote these up in a book in the first place though was to record (or to put on record) the actual intimate dialogue between us as we used them together though. I just wish back then I could have video’d things instead but it was at a time long before I had a device capable of recording moving image with- though a partner did agree one night to me setting up my DSLr on a tripod and using an interval timer took a few hundred JPGs aimed on the end of the bed so neither of us could be identified obviously (her rules). I did print them off and kept them in a folder, but over the intervening years I think I threw them out. I’ve certainly not got them now though sadly.

I’ve got some ideas already. It’s going to be a little different to my main series but it’ll have some similarities. The lead character is in some ways similar to Holly and Sophie from my other stories. The second character is a little different from anything I’ve done before. I don’t want to give too much away now though. As for story ideas, I’ve got enough for the first few chapters. I’ll see if everyone enjoys them before committing to a full series. I’m going to start with just two characters for now, but lots more will be added in due course.

As long as you keep writing !!!!!!

Have you ever thought of using some celebrities as your characters?( Figured it might be the only way I’ll ever get to see Christens Applegate cigarette bust some balloons lol)

But once again, as long as you write I am beyond content! Thanks for all the great work!!

Ultimately, you should do what you enjoy doing. That said, after 25 installments of anything, maybe it is time for you to rest that series for the time being, and do something different - either a one-off or a mini-series or short story (of sorts)?

Sometimes chopping-and-changing is good for writers, so you don't get bored writing the same characters and scenarios, and good for your readers, so that they don't get bored either.

You can always go back, and write part 26, if you want too, at a later date.

Thatís exactly what Iíve been thinking. Iíve been doing some non balloon stories lately for the same reason. Iíve already started the first part of the new series. Iím going to develop the characters a little before going straight into the balloon stuff. Of course theyíll be some at the beginning, but it wonít play a huge part until later.

I love your main story. I was 2 or 3 episodes behind, finished them last week and was very to find a new update this week. I still have to read the separate stories, so I can't comment on what way you should go.
You have written a very nice main story. Some episodes were really nice. I remember the first time Cabin and camping in a cave for example. If there is a problem with the main story, it is that there are so many characters who have a balloon fetish, it is getting unrealistic. I also have the feeling that you have to get more and more extreme to add new things to the story. Sometimes it is too much for me.
So a new story may be good, as characters can be softer and more careful. On the other hand, I enjoyed your main story very much (as long as it doesn't get too extreme), so I would like to read more from that too.

I agree. I felt I had to add more characters and more extreme elements to keep it interesting. This next series will be a lot calmer and have less characters but more detailed development. At least that’s what I’m hoping.
