So now that I've published my first eBook, In Praise of the Doubting Thomas, there's only one question left to ask: "Now what?"
Should I start another project, or just rest for a bit?
True, I have a bunch of half-finished eBook projects taking room in my flash drive, including that memoir I've only been writing for four years! I have so many ideas in my head that I kinda want to work on them all at once. I don't even feel right unless I'm working on a book project. I feel like if I'm not working on a book project, then I'm wasting daylight.
But on the other hand, it would be nice to just relax a little bit. Maybe I can actually focus more on important things like . . . oh, I don't know . . . my relationship with Sean? Work? College? That "real life" thing everyone keeps talking about?
I actually had a major depressive episode a few weeks ago trying to juggle work, college, and In Praise of the Doubting Thomas all at once. I don't want to get into the details, but it was bad. Really bad! But thanks to the new meds I'm taking, I think I can handle pressure better now.
For now I'll work on the few ideas I have a little bit at a time. No pressure to upload it on Smashwords at a specific date. And if things get too crazy, I'll take a break.
If you're a writer, do you immediately want to start another project when you're finished with one project? How do you handle all the ideas in your head?
