Voted: "Do all of these but try to divide time equally."
The book writeing not easy... if you want building a full world. ^.^ I have four world and novel in my mind. Already started at write... but i would have liked make illustrations and don't felt so free myself. : ) Began develop myself, in some sector, line by line - step by step. ^.^ Well, now better. But, this is "neverending story"... A piece of advice: Do don't it for a long time. (I have been about planning and developing for ten years my fantasy and sci-fi book... but not yet ready a book or version 1.0) I mean.. if you have one base version... you been one step further forward. ^.^
(This is just an idea, opinion...) I hope helped this.
Already broke your advice I never had the confidence to start this book series, until now at 28 years old. I started creating it in jr. high ish. Its about 15-20ish years old depending on certain areas I've developed. lol I thought the whole idea was dumb and though people would laugh so I never came out with it just made and wrote stuff. But I told my husband about it a year ago and he's told me to go for it, I dove in. So here's to 15 to 20 years of sitting on something. XD In the last 3 months I have been building my reference book, timelines on all characters and all 5 planets, as well as some maps, and artwork. I also have about 12 k words for one story down. I think I'm doing well on keeping steam. It is time-consuming, but it'll be worth it.
You're very welcome! Hehe... ^.^ Sorry, you looked younger. Your appearance is pretty youthful. (It's always good) Hmm... Not at all silly idea! Well... I'll would like read your fantasy book series. Keep it up! ^.^ I'll root for you!
Lol Thank you. I'm not sure if it is a good thing. I got turned away at 21 in a game store for not being old enough to purchase a mature shooter game. The guy thought my id was fake lol XD I had to bring my mom in to vouch for me lol XD My mom was rather annoyed lol XD
Thank you for your support! This new year I plan on trying to structure my time on a schedule to see if that will help divide my time better!
