(Picture: Indoor activity wherein I learn that 'easy to clean up!' window crayons are not easy to clean up and offend the cat.)
I'm between projects these days -- writing projects, household projects, website projects, crafting projects. Or, more like, I'm between projects I can do efficiently and independently of outside input. It's kind of like being in the waiting room of life, counting the days until things start. Part of this is because it's summer vacation and I've got children at home who make productivity challenging. Another part is exactly as stated -- I can't do my work until someone else does his, her or their work.
Arguably, writers attempting to sell ought never be without a project. There's always a story or premise that could use your love and attention before presenting it to potential buyers (agents, editors, etc). As soon as you finish one book, you're supposed to inhale deeply and jump into another, or whatever your system for changing gears may be. Even if your new project may not be marketable. Even if you have no idea if the first book in your series will even sell. Even if you have other uncertainties about a project's usefulness. (Can you sense the personal issue here? *snort*)
Writers write. Right? When you're not writing--what are you?
I'm a mom with 2 children who aren't old enough to fix their own meals and who can't just be 'sent outside to play' due to Kid2's allergies. What about you?
