Since I finished the Weirdly 2 edits, I'm in one of those spots where I really don't know what to do next. I have a tryst length story I could polish and submit, but I'm just not feeling that right now. I read through part of it and - bleh. It's not a bad story, I just can't seem to rally the brain cells necessary to do anything with it at the moment.
There is also the pitch story I should work on, although at this point I'm thinking it's going to be an R from that agent, because it's been two months give or take since I've heard anything from her. I have no doubt I can sell the story, but to do that, I've definitely got to finish it first and - bleh x 2. This is why I rarely, rarely dovetail stories. I put down writing on one and I completely lose momentum. I'm going to have to read this whole thing over again just to build up steam.
I'm itching to try my hand at a sexy urban fantasy, one more romance based. But gosh, I'm afraid if I start something fresh right now, I may get pulled from it and have to work on one of my older things and - BAM - I'm right back in the same situation with the pitch story. I'd have to pick it up after I've lost that flow.
So I'm stuck. I'm not sure which direction to go. Suggestions? Questions? Comments? What do the rest of you do to tempt the muse? I sat down and wrote my "fifteen minutes of fame" for the urban fantasy - that's where I sit for fifteen minutes and write everything that comes to mind for a new story idea then I stick it on the shelf and try to forget about it. It keeps me from taking on too many stories at once. After that, though, I'm at a loss. I've been reading lately, so it's not like I'm not getting that "refresher" in. I guess I could step away from everything and do a movie binge...
That's pretty much where I am right now. I started to write this morning and ended up contact papering the shelves in my bathroom linen closet. Yes. Really. *_* It hasn't been a bad day, just not terribly productive. Maybe tomorrow will be better.
