I’ve never wanted to write fiction. That’s what I said when I started this blog. That is, until a conversation with a friend prompted a brilliant idea for a book. A sort of semi-fiction book based on a true story back in my husband’s family tree. I want to have a go at writing it so much it almost hurts.
But I haven’t written Book 3 yet, the brilliant book idea that got this blog going in the first place. In fact, I just decided that Book 3 was going to have to wait until I’ve dealt with the download I’m writing to accompany Book 2 because it wasn’t working trying to change between the two, and the download is time dependent because Book 2 comes out in September.
I seem to have gone from being a writer that had a good idea about once every two years to having three on the go at once plus, as most authors do, a day job to take care of. I haven’t been in this situation before and so have no idea how to cope. So I’m asking, how do other writers cope with multiples ideas knocking on the doors of your mind, tempting you away from the commitments you have made to other books?
At least I did get some more of my download written yesterday evening, after a day of taking care of finances and going out for a picnic. Perhaps burning the candle at both ends is the only answer, but I don’t know if I can.
