Well it's been over two weeks and I'm finally feeling better. (Although I feel a little guilty because now my husband's sick.) I heard it said that for every one day you stop writing it takes two days to get back into it. I am finding that true. Part of the reason is while I was sick I spent a good deal of time in bed, bored by what was on TV and unable to concentrate on reading. So, I let my imagination take over and came up with an idea for a new series of books I'd like to write involving soldiers returning home from the war. Now I don't know much about what's been going on in Iraq, except what I see on the news, which truth be told, I don't watch often. So I've spent hours viewing soldiers' blogs, reading their detailed observations and innermost thoughts. What an eye opener! As I jot down notes for my new series, I am conflicted about whether to run with it or continue to plug away at the sequal to Love, Hospital Style. (Maybe if I'd get some positive agent/editor feedback about the first book of this series I would be more motivated to work on the second.)
Please help me with my decision on which project I should throw myself into. What would you rather read? A story about nurse's falling in love or soldiers returning from war, adjusting to civilian life, and finding love?
Thanks for the help! I appreciate your input!
