I'm needing some writerly opinions, so naturally I'm coming to my blog buddies for help.
We'll call this the question of the week.
You finish a wip then send it out into the world for a little beta lovin'. While you're sitting around returning the beta favor or reading books, maybe actually even experiencing life again, your writer juices creep up.
Oh you know what I'm talking about. They're the juices with side effects like bodyquakes, a constant glazed expression as you plan a 300 page book in your head and a perma-smile.
All because of your shiny NEW ideas!
You may have been trying to put a lid on them while you were finishing your last project, but they're plowing you down with reckless abandon right now.
My question then is this:
Do you take one of these new, fresh ideas and mold it into something right away, or do you put it on the back burner and continue working on what could be book number two for your recently finished piece?
I hear some say, let your creative juices flow. You never know if your current wip is even going to catch an agent's eye.
Others say, no, do book two because an agent is going to want to see what you have planned after book one.
I'm a query newbie so I I have no idea which is the best route....if there really is one. So please sound off.
Which would you choose. Write the new book or continue the series?
And for those of you who say both, well, I bow down to you:)
Have a great weekend peoples!
