Hmm, after several months of non-stop work, I find myself bookless. Bookless as in I don't have a book to write. What shall I do? Work on the lawn? Do the laundry? Clean the house?
Um, NO! I'm going to catch up on my reading and WRITE another book!! Like most writers, I don't lack for ideas. I have several. I could write the next book in my romantic suspense series, or I have another idea for a Presents novel. Probably, it'll be the Presents I get to work on.
Why? Because I had SO much fun writing the last one and I want to do it again! Writing that book was like coming home. Crazy, but true. I'm a little bereft at being done with Alejandro and Rebecca's story. (Though maybe I'm not done at all — revisions, you know.)
I'll probably also finish the proposal to the next RS — just because I love the story and want that blueprint available. 🙂
Writers: what do you do when you finish writing a book? Immediately start a new one? Revise the old one (I should mention there were two drafts of TSMR to this point)? Take a break and play? Cry and miss the characters? Want to blow them up? (That was me with HOT PURSUIT.)
Um, what shall you do with all that spare time… Gee, I dunno… Perhaps… Visit Hawaii before you lose a free room? 😉
Wanna cat-sit in July?
I’m usually brain dead for a few days, so I spend it reading and watching movies. But always, always the next idea starts forming in my mind. So I starting plotting in gradual stages until I decide its time to get back to it.
Congratulations on finishing up all your hard work! You’ve been very dedicated and deserve some type of reward!
You go to lunch with me!!!
Mark: Well, as fun as Hawaii would be, I have a very packed July. New Orleans next weekend and San Francisco at the end. 🙂 Any word on when you’re leaving….?
Danniele: Yep, brain dead. I do understand that! Thank you for the congrats. 🙂 I keep telling my hubby that my reward should be a pair of Christian Louboutin pumps, but he disagrees. He’s probably thinking about how he could buy a television with the money. *g*
PC: You know there is NO WAY I would miss lunch with you!! 🙂
No word yet, nope. So August is likely still open, if you hurry and book (no pun intended) those tickets! Heck, it is just a short hop from California!
(Sorry about the anonymous, was in a hurry earlier.)
