I am stuck in Limbo Land.
I worked for two years on Bix. And now, I'm kind of adrift not to be constantly thinking about him and wondering how I'm going to cook all the eggs I put into the pot.
Sure, I have another Bix story in my head--a story that picks up the day after the current book ends. And I do have a rough draft of the first chapter. But, all the writerly advice out there tells authors to wait to write a sequel in case you don't sell the first one.
So, where do I focus? Do I ignore the writing sages? Work on an old project--after all, I really hate for my research and world-building that I did for the dystopian to go to waste? Begin something new--What if Rip Van Winkle had descendants who were cursed? Focus on the business end--I emailed 5 queries last night.
Where, oh where to go?
Well, while you discuss it among yourselves, I'm going to pull out my procrastinated list and do some projects I've put off for a while. My husband will be so surprised when he comes home to a sparkling home.
