I don’t know where to go from here.
Do I start a new story unrelated to everything I already have going? Do I finish something I’ve already started? One of the short stories perhaps. Or the sequel to Out of the Blue. Do I give a side character from Her Unexpected Life a story of their own?
I could just take a break for a while and wait till I get ready but I may never get ready. I could wait till I hear back from my editor on my stories. But how do you know which suggestions to use and which aren’t for you? Personally I don’t like a comma before ‘and’ in a sentence. It feels unnecessary to me. But if I don’t use one will it damn me in the writing community? Should I care if other writers think I’m not as professional as them because I don’t use the Oxford Comma? The reader’s what matters right?
How do I know when my book babies are ready to leave the nest? Do I take to heart the one or two not so positive opinions and throw out all the good ones on my stories? I bet this is where a publisher comes in. If I had one they would tell me if my story was ready. If you’re an Indie Author how do you know when your story is ready?
Maybe I should title this stuck in the mud.
