Hello everyone! We apologize for our semi-absence! Talynn and I have been very busy with life the last few weeks, but we’re back now and ready to go.
On today’s WIP Wednesday, I’m curious to know how you all go about starting a new project. Since finishing the first round of revisions on GYRE and now playing the waiting game on a few different levels, I’ve found myself at a standstill. Do I really want to start GYRE’s sequel, or should I start a new project?
I let my ideas run wild, and now have a first chapter to three new stories written with no idea on how to proceed on any of them. When I start a new idea, I either write until I can’t write anymore and then take a step back; or I write a query blurb for it and take notes. Sometimes I’ll make a Pinterest board for it, too. I’ve done all those things, and now I’m stuck!
So, you beautiful readers, how do you proceed after that nugget of an idea is born? How do you keep yourself from getting stuck? Are you a plotter, a pantser, or a hybrid? Share all of your secrets :)
