How do you do it get back into new story or on that's been on the back burner for awhile?
Some people swear by an Outline. Others say just pantsing will do it. All I know is I'm having trouble turning from Book 1 and diving into Book 2.
But I need to. My pitch package request include specific numbers of pages, extensive outlines of the 3 books, and summary paragraphs of two more. I do have a rudimentary Timeline for the second book. And now, I have a rough (emphasis on rough) outline now. My next attempt at getting going is to reread all the pantsing chunks I have and fill in the outline, while brainstorming the bits and pieces I'm missing.
So what do you suggest? How to you get started again?
