The most important thing for a writer-type person is to be writing. When a big project is finished, the first big question is what to write next.
So where do I go from here, now that the Myke Phoenix: Year of the Dinosaur dodecology is completed? Oh, I know generally where the Myke Phoenix story goes from here, but should I keep writing about Myke and his friends or take a break?
I’m looking over two of my earlier books, Refuse to be Afraid and The Imaginary Revolution, to see if they can be revised and expanded in new editions.
But what direction should my next new work go?
More superhero adventures?
More efforts to inspire people to stop worrying and follow their dreams?
More space opera? Short stories?
Should I write more in the vein of “The definition of a peacable revolution,” far and away the most-read blog post I’ve ever written?
Or something altogether new?
This is a fun moment in the writer’s life – the pause to reflect and move on.
What do you think? What should I be writing? Leave me a comment with your thoughts, please!
