What To Do, What To Do

I'm in a bit of a writing funk. Not exactly stemming from last week's 3 in 3 days fiasco, but that didn't help either. Trying to figure out what to work on next. I've been dabbling all over the place. Started a couple different YAs, including a spin-off of CS but I don't want to get too deep into that one and besides, main character X sorta stopped cooperating.

Then there's the second YA with the urban fantasy tone. I love the idea, I just can't get it down right, so it obviously needs more baking time. The third YA idea, while its something I know... might not appeal to a lot of people. Then dad suggested I really write what I know, but who wants to go that dark about a teenager spending 6 years being harassed daily at school by kids and a handful of teachers? So yeah... not really wanting to go there.

EHQ is having a nocturne editor pitch next month. I do have a manuscript I've been working on off and on for the last 2 years that could fit, I'm not sure its as 'sensual' as the guidelines say but I can try to bring the heat level up I guess. Remember, a few years ago my RS was rejected because my hero wasn't sexy enough... and then I got hit with a new idea for that when I read the info on the pitch, but all I know so far is the heroine and I'm not sure she's typical nocturne material.

So as you can tell, I'm pretty well all over the place with really no clue what to write or do at the moment. I'm staying away from the business email because I don't want to start another run of passes, even though I just checked tracking this morning and the last full was only delivered yesterday so unless new agent C is super duper fast, there shouldn't be anything there yet.
