Since completing Three Weeks with the Coasties, I've bounced around on what to do next.
One option was a prequel of the Man of Destiny series. This would be set well in advance of the events in Man of Destiny and focus on the Deimos War referenced in background conversations.
Another option is to look at a project that has been going on since I was college - a fantasy epic set in the Atlantis of my own imagining. It's gone through a few incarnations, none of which worked.
I don't know how author authors operate, but I tend to "hoard" my various projects and come back to them. I have them all listed on a spreadsheet, which I sometimes review for ideas. So it was while studying this that I picked up another project that had been kicked around for a while: the Vampires of Michigan.
At some point I'll stop this game of being indecisive and just bludgeon my way through. Part of what holds me back is the knowledge that the farther afield I roam, the less of a "genre" author I become. Most authors seem to find a niche and stay there. If I were doing this as my primary source of income, I guess I would do that, too, but since it's a hobby, I can do what I want.
On the downside, that gives me extra opportunities to waste time.
Plus, it's summer. Who wants to stay inside and write?
