I am working through the downer these days. The downer? That’s what I go through after I have just finished a major project. First comes the euphoria of ‘I did it!’ and then comes “So now what do I do?” That’s where I am today. I just finished and validated my NaNo project.
Assassin is now ready for the editor, new cover, and final name. I will leave the most of it on Smashwords for a few more days if you want to read the first draft.
So, now what do I do? I have several other projects on the go, but, as usual I will flounder around for a few days before getting focused on something new. Sigh. Well, on with the ROW80 check-in.
1. Write 5000 words per week until first draft of WIP is complete.
Total fail so far this week. I finished Assassin last week and haven’t written a word since. Gotta get back into harness.
2. Accept more requests for interviews. (Currently I only do about one in five. Bad me! I’m told I need to open up and get over my shyness.)
Just filled out another one. This one was a lot of fun. You can find it on Sherri Hutchins’ blog here: http://www.livewonderstruck.com/interview-prudence-macleod/
3. Read and comment on at least one blog per day.
Yep, got this one easy.
So what happens for you when you put the final ‘The End’ on a manuscript or finish a major project you were working on? Do you experience a downer like I do, or do you have a different response to the victory?
