After you finish writing a book, do you always know what you'll write next?
If you're writing a series, you'll know who your main character are, and you might have an idea of where your plot will go. In fact, if you're like me, while creating one book in the series, you're getting plot points or new characters for the next one. I love when that happens.
But suppose you're done with that series and you want to start another. Or you're ready to write a single title. Do you know where you'll go with it?
Possibly like me, you have an idea file or a synopsis or opening scenes or characters for new works.
And possibly like you, you've really just gotten to the end of a stand alone and have revised until you can't look at it any longer, and then..... What?
I think I'll go out to eat tonight. I'll also catch up on a movie or two.
Soon--very soon, I promise--I will begin that diet, and I'll exercise. Oh, maybe I could go and start that right now. But nothing too strenuous so I'd be tired to go out tonight. I will, though, stop exercising my fingers right now, and I'll go and move my body.
Next time maybe I'll tell you how much weight I've lost: ) And what new book I've started on.
What about you? How do you handle ending one book and starting on another? Or starting to do exercise?
