Choosing Project Order

Recently I was asked how I choose project order. How do I pick which characters within a series to write first versus last. And also how do I choose when to write one series over another. So here is my answer:

Anyway, it’s awful and the lady who plays the heroine is running through the jungle for three days and her make up was still perfect.
