There’s a light at the end of the tunnel. The WIP is coming along swimmingly and I can almost see the end. Sure, I plotted this story from start to finish, but there have been deviations from the plot. I’m sure I’ll be upset when I go back and read what I’ve done, but overall, I’m pleased with the way it’s coming out.
However, now that the end is nearing, my mind is already burning gears to figure out my next project. I have, off the top of my head, at least eight stories waiting to be written. My problem is, which one to write next? I shouldn’t be thinking of this yet, I think, because I still have to clean up my 2nd MS and get to editing #3. But my mind doesn’t work that way.
Right now I’m torn between starting book 4 of the Veil series, and starting a new series. Veil #4 would be about a witch and an incubus. The incubus has appeared in the first two of my Veilerian books and I have a vague idea how I want to start the story. On the other hand, the next series I’m contemplating, has been scratching at me since November.
The second series would involve a whole new world, a whole new list of characters and problems. Instead of fighting a known evil, the heroes and heroines battle their own natures. I know who they are and what they want, I just haven’t found their counterparts yet.
Like I said, I shouldn’t be thinking about this just yet, right? I need to stay on track with the WIP, right? Well, I don’t know. Is it better to keep writing and edit when I can? Or should I just edit first? It’s a puzzle, one I think I’ll need help solving.
So that’s today’s question: What do you think I should do? Edit, revise, and clean? Or start something new to keep my creative juices flowing? If so, which one? The new series, or the old? Any advice is greatly appreciated, my friends, and to show that appreciation, I’ll be giving away a book to a random commenter!
