With the Saga of a Space Freighter Series (aka the Matilda Series) completed, I have been floating in a sea of ‘what to do now’. It’s weird to think about having closed a chapter of my life that has been part of me for close to a decade. So, I’ve been trying to figure out the next step. And by step, I mean the next Grand Step.
I’ve been catching up on other non-writing projects that have been cluttering my mind. I’ve gotten some reading done (which is really nice since my “to be read” pile was getting enormous), caught up on some tv shows, and been catching some new (to me) bands at different venues. It’s been a lot of fun, but none of it has helped me figure out the next thing.
Don’t get me wrong, I haven’t been idle. I’ve been working on research for a couple of projects, and some of that research has given me the impetus to change tracks on at least one writing project. But all in all, I get the feeling those stories will either be big steps that end quickly or little steps that stay with me for a long while.
In other news, I’m working on getting the Saga of a Space Freighter up at other vendors, but nothing seems to be as simple as I try to make it. Setbacks are points of learning as frustrating as they can be sometimes. Audio versions are still on the horizon, and stepping back from the series for a bit is a good idea. Either way, I still have plenty to do.
Maybe I don’t have to find that Grand Step, though. Perhaps the smaller steps are what I need.
