The short answer is "I dunno."

I have written a couple of shorter pieces in that world: Fire. Escape. and The Interview. It's an interesting place, and a world I really love, but I feel like I've spent a lot of time there. And after The Beauty of Our Weapons, I really felt like I needed to give Dex and co. a break for a while.

I'm enjoying the other projects I've been working on, but there's a definite possibility I might rejoin that world. The main obstacle I see is that real life technological changes are rendering a lot of the cyberpunk elements of that world into banal reality, so that could put a cork in the whole thing.

Never say never, though.(less)

I'm not sure I really believe in writers' block, but I definitely go through waves of creativity and output.

I'm fond of using prompts and randomness to help me over a writing slump. I have a set of "writers' dice" with concepts printed on them that can help generate plot points, and I sometimes use images as inspiration. Mostly, though, it's about carving out time and telling myself that I'm going to write now, whether I'm keen or not.

There's no magic muse, it's just work. Sometimes the work feel more like play, but it's industry not fairy dust that makes it happen.
