I’m in an interesting phase of the writing process. It’s the world-is-my-oyster phase; the time between writing projects. I’ve finished writing Book III of the gift trilogy, Book II is about to be published, but as I learned after I finished writing Book I, the ideas don’t just stop because the book’s done. They flood in, rudely interrupting thought and sleep and other moments they really shouldn’t.
But this time around, with the trilogy complete, the possibilities are even bigger. Do I start a brand spanking-new project or continue with Emelynn’s story in the trajectory in The Gift? Do I continue writing in the fantasy thriller genre or do I change genres? What about the narrative? Do I continue with the first person POV, or switch it up with multiple POVs?
There are so many possibilities and so few hours in each day. What to do? It’s a time of asking questions, researching and brainstorming.
What would you do next?
