Decisions, Decisions…

Recently I posted a blog called Writer’s Crossroads about deciding on what to write next. A month later I am still struggling with that decision. I’m not sure what my hold up is exactly.

I have actually written the first couple pages of the sixth book in my paranormal wedding planner series which means that I am heading in that direction, right?

Maybe. Because then I wrote the first couple of pages of the potential first book in my Mind Sweeper shifter spin-off trilogy.

And as amazing as I try to be at balancing my day job with writing and publishing, I can’t write two books at once. So I really, really, really need to make a decision and settle back into my writing process once again.

Do I roll the dice? Ask my magic eight ball? Shuffle the deck?

Any suggestions on decision-making would be greatly appreciated!

 

Writer’s Crossroads

When an author writes “the end” to a story, it’s an amazing feeling. But it also signals the author to gear up for what they are going to do next. If they are in the middle of a series and have obligations to finish that, then it isn’t hard to make a decision to move forward.

For me, I will be publishing books 4 and 5 in my paranormal wedding planner series this fall which leaves book 6 to go. And I will get to that book soon. But right now, I am at a crossroads. Because when I’m done with book 6, I have to decide what I want to write next.

I have some ideas (all possibilities and not certainties, aka – no promises!).

I could write a spin-off shifter trilogy for my Mind Sweeper series and tie up the loose ends for my unattached characters – Doc & Jason for one, and Grffin for another…

I have also been toying with writing a cozy mystery series as well…

I could pull a partially written book I have started that would jump start a new trilogy on some pretty interesting supernatural that I have been playing with…

Or, I could work on a new series that’s starting to form in my brain which would be very different than what I have written before…

See? A lot of options to sift through. And while they are exiting, they are also a bit daunting. So any suggestions (or votes) would be appreciated. I’m writing for my readers after all…
