Motivations: The Dragons’ Choice

I wanted to write The Dragon’s Choice right away after doing A Plague of Wizards, but I was committed to writing A Great Deal of Patience.  That was the book that everyone wanted.  As I stuttered along with Patience, though, I worked out the whole story of The Dragon’s Choice in my head, so the next time I paused in writing Patience, I whipped out The Dragon’s Choice.  It only took me about six and a half weeks to write, and it was probably the most fun book to write to this point.  Because of this, I think that after I finish the final Patience book, I’m only going to write whatever I feel enthused about at the moment.
