Which Project Do I Choose Now?

So I submitted both Dragon's Eye and A Child's Wish to the publisher. Now I wait for a response. My next writing project is Releasing Chaos, the last book in the Sumeria's Sons series (so excited!!) but I have a couple of editing projects I need to slate for completion as well.

The first one is A Werewolf's Tale & A Druid Sword, which is the second book in the ION series. In the fall I took the old ms and revised and lengthened by 20k but I need to go back one more time. I received the beta reviews back around the time my dad went into the hospital last November so that project fell by the wayside. With luck, I won't have to make too many revisions and I can wrap it up within a week and submit the book to the publisher as well.

The second editing project I need to slate somewhere in my writing time is Fate and Destinies. It's one of labor of love stories which also makes me hesitant to get it ready to go out into the world. The editing on it is going to be grueling because it's an expanded story from the freebie of Fated. It's now over 105k and I'm second guessing how I decided to write it. I don't even know if I want to submit it somewhere or self-publish. I finished it March of last year and it's just sitting on my hard drive waiting for me to put on my big girl panties. >.<

Bespoken is talking to me but that's usually been in the middle of the night. I try to remember the ideas in the morning but most of the time what I remember just seems like jibberish. Once Releasing Chaos is finished Bespoken the next project and I would like to have some semblance to my thoughts when I sit down to pen it.

I noticed that the M/M Romance group over on GoodReads is gearing up for their Don't Read In The Closet event. I didn't participate last year. Part of the reason was because I didn't have the time to hang around there trying to nab a prompt that spoke to me, and the other was because I didn't have the time. Not really. But this year I'm thinking about participating again. If I can keep the project under 20k or so, I think I can swing it. I LOVE writing stories for prompts. It's almost like an addiction. And I was such a good girl last year.

BUT I'm afraid that I will only have time for one "just because it's fun" project and I had slated that to be an Urban Fantasy/Dystopia Biker MC story. I can't do both and keep to the writing schedule I planned for this year. The Valespian Pact folks would likely string me up by my toes if Bespoken was pushed back any further. I like my toes, thank you very much.

Decisions. Decisions. 

For today I'll some editing and putting my thoughts for Releasing Chaos on the whiteboard. (And I really wish I could get out of grocery shopping today but I'm afraid I have to bundle up and leave my warm house.) ^__^

Thank you for stopping by and reading!!
