Please, please! I need your opinion!

Wednesday, May 19, 2010

For those of you who don't already know, I'm a writer. I've gotten non-fiction articles, devotionals, and reviews published, along with running my three websites (this one of them).

I'm also working on my second book. The first was a murder mystery/thriller, and I'm still looking for an agent for it.

I cannot decide what to do now. I had pretty much decided to go with number 3 and then today I got another (surprise) check in the mail for a devotion I sent out months ago. So I don't know if the "Christian writing ro- here are my choices:

1) I have a book started that is based on the (fictional) story of a woman in the first century who was a disciple of Christ. She goes and spreads the word of Christ to other women in some of the same cities that the apostles visited. I have done a ton of research, and feel comfortable writing it.

2) I have a another murder mystery half-done. But to be honest, writing about the same topic is getting a bit stale for me. But I am talented at that type of writing.

3) A third book, not started except for a vague outline, based in the future. It's not sci-fi, it's more a "consequences of our actions, sociology viewpoint" book about how human behavior while sometimes cruel and pointless can also be inspired and amazing under certain circumstances.

I've prayed and simply cannot decide which of these three to pursue. I need to focus on one of them, as I am busy with other writing (non-fiction articles, devotionals, stories, etc).

What is your opinion? Pick an option or give me advice or whatever.
Thank you in advance,
God's blessings,
Jennie

    I think the first one sounds interesting and it sounds like you have already put a lot of work into it. I agree that you can always do the other two later if you feel like it.

    I agree, number 1. It sounds like such an interesting book, and you have done lots of research on it, so finish it, get it published and on sale so I can buy a copy!!!
    Seriously, number one sounds like a really good book..so maybe you should finish that one, then decide what to do next.
    Keep up the good work!!

    The obvious choices would be option one or two, since you've already started them. But you seem to be bored with the mystery, while comfortable with the first option. Personally, I would finish the first book since you've done so much research and have a level of comfort there. Put the second option on hold for a little while, and if you have the time, and are up to it or feel you're stuck and need a break, then do some work on the third while finishing the first.

    Sounds like you'll be busy! Good luck with it!
