…I forgot. I haven’t done the whole ‘god’ thing in circa twenty years. So maybe I should say ‘universe’ or something less religion specific.
I sit here, as my dinner slowly burns on the range, with my fingers hovering over this neon blue keyboard attempting to articulate the myriad of thoughts devouring my brain. I am consumed with to many it’s become hard to sift through them all–searching for the right train of thought.
Frustrating building, I’m now calling to the heavens for guidance.
My writing inspiration seems to be an situation of ‘all or nothing.’ Either I have so many ideas I’m lost (like right now,) or it’s a blank desert–endless miles of dust mote dunes suffocating my brain. If only I could find a trigger… Oh, wait!! (again!) I entered a contest. I did! I entered #PitchWars, and now I have a list longer than the Mississippi to choose from.
Here is my question for you, my lovely readers. How do you choose your projects? What is your process? Normally, mine is I wait until an idea keeps me up at night–but I have a bit quandary, for I have a WIP that needs tending, another MS plotting on a promise–and then there’s the one that’s keeping me up.
Do you see what the problem is? What should I do?!
So, now you are god (this could go poorly quickly, but lets do it any way.) All of the help you provide (aka–advice) is greatly appreciated!
Now–if you’re also entered Pitch Wars, I wish you luck! And to everyone else. Happy Writing!!
That’s tough and I know how you feel! It’s always hard to choose, but I try to make my next-project choice before I’m finished with revisions for the last project. That will give me time to build up my character and plot notes in Scrivener before I start drafting. I don’t know if this is the best way, but it’s the way that works for me. I try to cut out a little time for each project a day. 🙂
Since writing this post I’ve made my decision–or my decision made itself for me. My “keep me up at night” story is way to underdeveloped to touch (yet). Now I go onward with my WIP, because leaving it unfinished is a crying shame. 🙂
