I'm writing a story, and I'm enjoying it. The details are coming on well, I have an ending, and I know roughly how I might get there, but, whenever I see blogs or posts about novels and how it takes years and years of practice, several failed books, and piles of rejection letters, I get a little bit worried that I won't be able to write lots of things once this story is done. It's my first novel, and I'm fully prepared to accept that the first, second, third, fourth, fifth, and even more, drafts will be fairly useless. I keep thinking 'but, I don't have any more ideas apart from this one that I'm giving my all with - how the heck am I going to write more stories after this one? I'm just worried, and I guess I'd like other people's thoughts on what you do when you're in the middle of one novel, and also when you've finished one - do you get ideas for new stories straight away or is there a period of stagnation?
