My husband saw my Facebook status saying I would take a month off before starting work on my next novel, so I guess I have to keep that vow. I do have many other things needing my attention—like housework. Yeah. Ugh. But menial tasks leave your mind free to wander, and wander mine will to what I’ll write next.
If you followed this blog last year, you might remember that I changed my mind a few times on which project would be my next book. I think I’ll keep quiet on that front this time until I’m absolutely, positively sure. After all, I have a reputation to protect. Or are crazy writers the hot new thing to be?
Of course, since I’ve rejoined a small critique group, I’ll have some writing involvement in the next month. In particular, I’ll be seeking feedback on some short stories already written. And I’ll be reading some books that have gathered dust in my TBR pile.
Life between books is strange. It’s disconcerting when I wake up and realize I have no book to work on that day. But clean windows are nice too. Maybe I’ll see something through them to inspire a great story.
Your turn: What’s ahead for you this next month?
