I’m asking myself this question a lot at the moment. It pounds through my brain when I walk Procrasti-Pup, and goes round and round in my mind when my head hits the pillow at night.
Having written so much last year, I’m feeling very much at a loose end right now. A few days ago, I wrote a sketchy outline for a new adult novel and I’ve set that to percolate while I finish up some edits on book three of The Mapmaker Chronicles. So perhaps I’ll look at that seriously once book three begins to make its steady progress through the publishing process.
Or not. Part of me feels as though I should be working on something. Getting the words down. But there’s another part of me that feels as though I need to still the ‘should‘ voice in my head and let things be, just for a while.
It’s not my usual style, I know, but right now I feel as though my creative life needs less of the ‘hurry up’ and more ‘hang on a sec’.
It may simply be that the school holidays don’t give me room to think much beyond the next meal (why do they need to eat SO often?). Or it may simply be that 2015 will be a slow writing year for me. Only time will tell.
What will you write this year?
