Suppose you’re between projects. You’re waiting for beta readers to get back to you and you’ve got some time to write, but you’re not sure what to write about. How do you pick something?
a) Go to your list of ideas and pull the top one off the stack?
b) Close your eyes, listen to your gut, and start typing about whatever moves you?
c) Systematically evaluate all your options and pick the one you think is most “publishable?”
d) Try out a different genre, different POV, and different tense than what you normally write in?
e) Write? With all the fun that’s waiting for you on Facebook and Twitter and Photoshop?
