I have a problem. I have yet another idea for a new manuscript, and now I can’t stop thinking.
New research is to be done because I know absolutely nothing about this subject matter.
A cast of characters needs to be developed, but the protagonist is all set.
The story…oh, man…is it a good story. It always is at the start, isn’t it?
I have yet to finish the first draft on my YA historical novel I started at the beginning of this year. I’m about 3/4 there–though, it’s hard to say, until the manuscript is done to the point no holes can be picked at. There are also three manuscripts in different stages of revisions, begging to be finished and sent off.
All three manuscripts started, because I came up with an idea while I was writing a first draft… See a pattern here?
Here’s today’s resolution. Finish the projects I’m currently working on, and let this new idea brew for a bit. Sigh.
