Whenever I see stuff like this,
So when I first saw this on We're the Millers,
I've personally gained enough regrets in my lifetime to fill an entire book. Honestly, it could probably make for some pretty decent comedy. But I'm here to admit to just one in particular—leaving a book's ending hanging, and not writing the sequel in my next project.
Those who have read Shymers and The Day Zombies Ruined My Perfectly Boring Life know that I've been guilty of this not just once, but TWICE. Agh, what a young, naive writer I was back in those days. I've become so much wiser in 1/5 years that I can promise you, I'll never write a cliffhanger again without having the sequel coming up right behind it. I've had this terrible pressure on my shoulders, knowing these two books need to be written. You have to understand that I'm the type who sometimes completely buckles under that kind of pressure. When things stress me out, I tend to avoid them, hiding away until the last possible moment.
All I have to say is I'm really sorry I left everyone hanging so long, and can promise I won't ever do anything quite so cruel ever again, for all our sakes (and my sanity). The sequel to Shymers is still "in the works", but I can't say with any certainty when it will be released. Hopefully soon.
Okay, now that I've confessed one of my deepest regrets, it's your turn. What is something you regret doing? It's okay to share, because as one wise, funky painter in the 80s used to always tell us:
