Here’s the thing. I have way too many projects on the docket.
In fact, sometimes I think my brain comes up with new project ideas just to avoid thinking about whatever I’m currently working on. Now that Atone is in the editing stages I’m trying to decide which of my many story ideas I am going to focus on next. Some have had more prep work than others, some even have words written, some are just basic plot ideas that I dream about while I’m doing super important things like laundry.
My list includes:
A Regency romance (As I’ve said before, straight historical kind of scares me)
A YA paranormal set in modern day Montana (I am not at all joking when I say this came to me in a dream)
A retelling of the fairy tale All-Kinds-of-Fur/Allerleirauh (there’s actually words written on this one!)
A novelization of my flash fiction version of Red Riding Hood (you guys, I’m gonna take archery lessons)
Lilia’s story – Aspire: A Fairytale
A YA fantasy that involves dragons (words written here too, in fact, the short Chasing Storms from Views from the Tower is from this novel)
And this is my “NARROWED DOWN to what I want to work on next” list of projects. Obviously I have issues with focus (cue my mother saying “no, really?”)
If you’re a writer how do you pick your next project?
