I like working in isolation so I can focus on my work, but do what works for you. Think about the following:-
- Do I want my next project to be fiction or non-fiction?
- Do I want to write a novel, short story, picture book?…
- What do I want to write about?
- Where do I want the setting to be i.e. Los Angeles, New York?
- Outline the characters – virtues/flaws
