New Project ... Of Course
I guess that books are like popcorn, once you write one you just have to have another. I started noodling around on a new idea back when I sent my manuscript off to my editor. I had to do something in that 4 week pause. I love the memoir as a form but after over a year writing that book I was longing to spend my wings a bit and try a different form. The writing for this new project is slower as so much of time is devoted to ... well ... just thinking. I am enjoying the new project and already have a good chunk of the first draft well in hand.
It is never good to open the oven when the cake is baking so I'll hold the nature of the new piece for now. Just know that something new is in the works.
