This is the hardest part- figuring out what to write. I’m not back 100% so for me, writing nonfiction is easier than writing fiction. I am seriously considering turning some of my writer workshops into ebooks as I know they’d be fun and easy for me to do, but at the same time, I want to write fiction again. This is the toughest aspect of writing. When to push and when not to push. *sigh*
Writing blog posts take some thought, some effort, just like the workshops. They take research, do the workshops. But writing fiction- it takes more- emotion and plotting- something part of me is not sure I’m quite up to par yet. However, I need to start somewhere. So, I think I’ll pick out two projects- one of each, giving myself a chance to go back and forth if one doesn’t work as well as the other.
Now, the question is- what do I choose? For the nonfiction, do I learn toward my BDSM writing workshop? Or my world building workshop? Hmm, tough choice on both of them. I like them both and they do have some serious chops when it comes to expanding and building on what is there. They could seriously be something terrific, especially if done right. Maybe the world building to start since it could be used for more than one genre. That might just be the ticket.
Fiction is harder to decide. Do I go with the Goddess Hunted which needs a complete overhaul? Or with Doggone Wedding which needs to be revamped and have the last half written once the first half is straightened out? Or do I go with Love Beyond Time which needs the ending redone as the rest of the story has been revamped nicely? If I’m going for easy- it’s LBT. But I need some time to think on it. Part of me wants to do DGW because of the summer tropes thing for Loose Id. Then there’s my Trapped in Christmas Bliss story. Or even Beg. Stories I need to finish and have so much merit. Choices are tough. But I should go with something that can be counted as easy success before going on something harder. This book will be for Loose Id, first and foremost.
Once that book is done, then I can work on a self publishing fiction book. The nonfiction book will be mine to publish, but fiction, it’ll be nice to give something to Loose Id again. Then if I want, I can go back to doing something for myself. I have a story idea for a serial, but I need to work it out, mindmap it before I consider writing it all out, so I know where to stop each section. I might need to consult with Dakota Cassidy, Renee George, and Dawn Montgomery for some advice.
If you have suggestions, let me know. I’d be glad to hear them.
