Writers: After completing a project, do you ever feel restless?

Recently I’ve completed writing my first novella Orniainthi (ebook now available, print arriving the week of March 6th-10th), and right now I’m feeling restless.

Right now I’m working on marketing and promotion for the novella, and I’ll start finishing editing my novel I, Darcy (out this October) in August.  The problem is I don’t know what to write next. Granted there are a couple of ideas/projects that I want to work on but I can’t seem to focus.  ezmagif

So my question to my fellow writers, after completing aproject, do you ever feel restless, and if so what do you do to combat the feeling?

Last week I immersed myself in researching my ancestry, which was interesting to say the least. But now I want to start working on another story.  There are three tugging at me.


There’s the sequel to Orniainthi, I have an idea of what’s going to happen next but I’m still not sure if I want to start on that right now.  Then there’s my space story Necrocalia-originally a comic idea that didn’t go as planned-but I feel so overwhelmed with all of the story building, etc. that I’ve created for it.  Finally there’s my story Ategar-also originally a comic idea-I’ve got it all outlined, but not sure if I want to commit.


So you see this isn’t a case of writer’s block or maybe it is? I feel as if I ought to start on another project but at the same time I don’t want to rush into it. So my fellow writers, I’ve reached out to you.

What should I do?
