When is it time to start your next book?

Today. Right now. What are you waiting for?

(Okay, okay. I'll go into detail on this for tomorrow's post. Meanwhile, feel free to use the comments section to lay out all your excuses for not starting your next manuscript.)

Once I start my next manuscript I just cannot get interested in the querying/following up/submitting the last one. But! I still start the next manuscript... whether that is to my detriment or not, I cannot say!

I always have numerous books in the works. Right now I am actively writing three non-connected books, with the knowledge that I need to write one I promised my readers and another few I promised someone else *cough*.

I think that's how I write so much; I always have something in some sort of draft ready to be picked up and polished.

Special request: Can you please, pretty please turn off your Captcha thing for comments? I swear I spend more time trying to prove I'm not a robot that typing this comment. I don't use Captcha on my sites and I rarely get spammed.

They're like, what's this word? mrMz and then you type it and it was really rrNha or something. *shakes head* LOL

The day after I finish the last book.

Seriously, I love the thrill of leaping into a new book and can't wait to get going. If I wait too long after finishing one, I start (as my husband says) "getting twitchy".

Shoshanna-- done. Thanks for letting me know. I may need to tweak this if I get too much spam, but we'll try it for now...
