So, I try to maintain a practice of only writing one book at a time. I’m nearing the end of the current project, which of course means the next one has begun jumping up and down in my head, demanding attention. I lay awake for a good chunk of last night as the first chapter played out on the movie screen in my head. This was my experience with the current project, too — it was screaming for attention as I wrapped up the one I’m currently querying. Now, I’m starting to question that practice. Do I give in? Write the chapter for the new thing while it’s still fresh? Or tell it to calm the fuck down while I finish the task at hand?
