I must admit, I am a bit at a loss.
Usually I have a book project kind of in the wings at this point in time. I finished my third book about six months ago, and after some editing (which it desperately needs), I should be thinking about what I want to write next.
But for some reason, I just haven’t had a project that has stood out to me. Since one of my project ideas fell through, I have to start looking into what I want to devote so much time and effort to. When you write historical fiction, not only do you have the actually writing to do, but you also have to do so much research–often several months’ worth.
It’s a little disconcerting, but I am taking a little bit of time to think about a project that I really want to write on and that I really care about. Taking some time to graduate and relax for a little bit has made a huge difference. And I know that once I am ready, I will come up with something.
Have you ever felt stagnated with a project you have? Or you don’t know what to write about? How do you fix it?
