What should you do after you finish editing your first manuscript?
What should you do after you send it out to agent after agent, editor after editor, and wait for good news?
What should you do after your book is accepted and you’re waiting for it to come out?
Write your next book.
Don’t waste this valuable time.
While waiting for Hurricane Crimes to come out, I sent 30 Seconds to my editor (I was lucky to have this one finished) and started working on my next book.
Writers don’t take vacations.
After I finished writing the last book in my unpublished series, I told myself I was going to take a vacation from writing for a while. Did that happen? NOPE! I immediately started planning and researching my next piece (which is on the backburner), as well as editing all of my short stories. I just couldn’t turn off my writing switch. I think that’s normal for most writers. We are obsessed with writing, even when we aren't writing. Some would call it a curse, but I believe it is a blessing. :)
So what are you waiting for?
Write your next story.
Even if you change focus from one story to another, don’t stop.
