Two novels on ice with the publisher for another eighteen months. One manuscript disappeared into black hole of submission land, at least theoretically. Two proposals and one short story in same black hole, theoretically. One short story on ice till books are out.
Should I work on the third in the "on ice" series, optimistically hoping the publisher will want to keep it going (and praying they don't decide, eighteen months from now and 2.5 years after contract, that it's no longer relevant)?
Should I work on another in second proposed series, optimistically hoping it will eventually emerge from the black hole?
I have a new idea for something unrelated...should I devote a few months to that assuming nothing ever will re-emerge from black hole?
Should I just forget about writing and start watching more reality TV? After all, Survivor and Amazing Race and a fall season of Ice Road Truckers are all about to start.
I freakin' hate this.
Okay, whining over. Tell me something to work on.
