When you’re writing, do you ever find yourself randomly going from one BRILLIANT idea to the next without keeping track of your place? I have found myself in quite a conundrum. I started writing one book that was a sequel (still working on it, don’t worry!), and I got distracted and wrote a completely different book.
Yes; you heard me right, I wrote a complete front to back different book. I hadn’t really meant too, but I suppose when the muse is speaking, it is really speaking! I am at a loss of what to do with the book I inadvertently wrote. I really need to be writing the sequel to my first book, but this book I just wrote could be amazing with some editing.
When I had lost my mind and decided started writing another story while working on another, I hadn’t really imagined the dilemma I would face when deciding which one to work on first. Choose the old and familiar, or the new and exciting? So, I did what any sane writer decided to do…
For at least a week. I haven’t even had my new and extremely simple, but cool laptop with me. I just couldn’t decide which one to do, so I wasted time that could have been spent editing or writing. I am incomplete without writing. Everyone notices the difference in me immediately and they think I have finally lost all my marbles. I can’t explain why either. I can’t really tell my boss the reason why I’m sighing every two seconds in bordum because I can’t decide on what story to finish. I promise you she would think I was mental. Do you ever find yourself in such a terrible position? I must not be the only one. Oh and FYI, I have yet to decide which one to work on. Yes, indecisiveness at it’s greatest.
