What to write next?
Wow - I haven't been in this mode for a long time. After 4 months of working day and night (between the day job and sleep) on the new website (you haven't checked it out yet, how come?), then last night staying up way past my bedtime (I hate those 5 am alarms) to finish my latest article for the Children's Writer Newsletter and now I'm done and have to figure out what writing project to pick up next. Okay, so the house is a mess, the garden needs attention and there are 2 weeks worth of laundry waiting to be done but for the rest of this week I don't care. I am going to go home from work and vegetate, play with my dog, read (yes!) and try to figure out my next book. Is it the jazz book? A MG novel that only has a couple of chapters, 2 characters, and a lot of research books still to be read? Is it the flying book? A YA novel that I have been writing and rewriting for over 15 years. (sad, huh?) Is it another verse novel about my time working with at-risk kids?
Yikes! I don't know. All I know is that my agent doesn't want me to work on picture books right now so of course, that's all I can think about.
Write on, right now.
