I got my revisions for The Eternal Rose in the mail today, a big, fat, huge package that I then hauled around the park in my morning constitutional (aka walk) before hiking up the little baby hill to home. Good thing I got more of my walk in today before I picked up the mail–that sucker is really heavy. (I had to take the car to get the oil changed, so I dropped it off, swung by the library, a block and a half from there, to leave some books and computer CDs I was donating, then the block and a half to the post office, then… Have I mentioned I live close to downtown in a very small town?)
So I have those revisions to work on this week. Which is a good thing, because once I finish them up, I have no idea what to attempt next.
This can be a big deal to some of us on occasion. When one is working on contract, it’s usually obvious what needs to be written next. However, I have finished up (mostly) my current Luna contract, and have already sent the proposal for the option book to the agent. I have also sent a fantasy romance manuscript. Now what?
This is going to require some thought. What of my current ideas has the best shot at actually making a sale? (Remember those goals of mine?) Maybe I need to make up something new to target to a new opportunity. Maybe I need to try something completely different, without any fantasy/paranormally elements. What if all of the things I have out circulating suddenly sell? Will I have time to write them all? Is that a problem I will mind having? Will I make myself crazy before I finally decide what to work on?
Well, yes, probably…
