The video has been edited. Now all that needs to be done is to have it uploaded. We’re getting very close. 🙂
I’m in the process of trying to determine what I’ll work on next. I still have to finish the vamp novella. I plan to do that today. Once I’m done, I want to go through a manuscript I wrote a long time ago to see if it can be ‘fixed’ enough to fit in the Blaze line. (It was originally written for that line. I just never submitted it.) I also have a paranormal that may fit the Nocturne line. I’d have to go through it, too before I even consider submitting it. This brings me to the new work. I have a few ideas that are starting to take shape. They aren’t completely formed yet. I’ll need to do some brainstorming for both, especially since they’re looking like series books. (I’m not counting the urban fantasy partial I’ve already sent my agent or the futuristic romance partials sitting on my editor’s desk. Those are separate projects.) It’s taking so long to hear back from publishers right now I figure I have time. *g*
This is where spin the bottle comes in. As much as I’d love to work on everything at once, I’ve found in the past I’m not very productive when I do so. The pros of working on multiple projects is that you don’t tend to lose interest. When one stops, you can pick up in the other. The problem I’ve encountered when I do that is I don’t seem to make much progress in either manuscript…which frustrates me to no end.
So how do you choose? Sometimes it’s as simple as laying out the projects on the floor and spinning a bottle. Whichever one the bottle points to is the project you pursue. I’m at that point now. I am really looking forward to working on something new. No matter what I pick, it’ll take a while to put the project together. Like I said, the ideas I have now aren’t formed enough to write more than a beginning. I have a lot of brainstorming ahead of me.
How do you pick projects?
