What do I do now?

So I finished my book a few weeks ago. YAY!!!!

But now I'm wondering, what the heck do I do now? Do I try to go the traditional route and send queries and synopses and first chapters to agents who get thousands of submissions a year, or do I go the new techy way and try to self promote and self publish and sell it for 99 cents a digital copy on amazon? Or do I say screw it and leave it on the shelf and move on to the next project and not even worry about publishing?

What do I want? Sometimes I say I want to be the Ani DiFranco of writing and start my own publishing house. Sometimes I want all the support that an agent provides. Sometimes I just want to share my work with family and wait til the right books comes out to try and publish.

Is this the right book to push? Should I wait to push the next one?

I have written a query letter that I like, but I really don't want to have to write a synopsis. Is it necessary? I don't know.

What do I want to do now?

I don't know.
