That's a question I've been battling with since...well, since I haven't written anything new.
I learned that I cannot write anything new while on submission. The waiting game kills me. That's when I go on a reading binge.
But then I have to face the music.
And I've been wondering what to write next. I have to finish what I started. Although I have so many shiny, new, ideas, I have to finish what I started. I fear that if I let myself slip into not finishing anything I will fall into that cycle again. No. I stand firm and I have to finish what I started. Even if it's just a first draft. A backlist. Something that will never see the light of day.
I have to finish it.
