But my head says that the picture book can be researched faster (yes, even though it's nonfiction) and I have a very good feeling about its marketability (in other words, I think publishers will really like the idea.) And it's not that I'm totally emotionless about this book - far from it. The idea of it, and how I picture it being executed, gives me that itchy writer's feeling of "Yes! That must be written!" And, too, maybe it would be nice to change gears for awhile - you know, get the sparks flying from a different piece of flint.
So - which one to work on next - the heart or the head? The sloppy, messy, heart-driven book, or the practical, marketable change-of-pace? How do *you* decide what to work on next? And by all means, voice your opinion on my next project in the comments section! Please? ;-)
