Will we ever see more of the Scorpio Races realm? If no, will we see more equine influences in the future?

maggie-stiefvater:

I’m normally quite certain when I’m done with a book. I can feel it in my heartparts. A story just won’t release me until I’ve finished what I meant to finish.

Usually what this means is the character arcs — I need the characters to end up where I want them and then, ta da, I can return to my regularly programmed life. I no longer daydream and night dream about the novel every day and every minute. 

But I never got that feeling with the Scorpio Races, and for a long time, I wasn’t sure why. Puck and Sean both ended up where I wanted them. So what was the problem?

Then I realized that it was because the island, Thisby, had become a character to me, and that is a character I can never really put to rest. Do I want to return to it? Desperately. Will I? When a story calls me back to it.

Thisby is kind of a part of me now. I couldn’t forget it even if I wanted to.

A writer is a world trapped in a person.

this is why you can’t tell anybody about Cabeswater and also why we, as the human race, cannot have nice things.
