Multiple Idea Syndrome
I have a writerly problem. It's a good one to have, to be sure, but a problem nonetheless.
I suffer from Multiple Idea Syndrome.
Ideas pop into my head all the time. Solutions to issues I'm having with certain scenes. Interesting characters to explore. Brand new stories.
Again, that's a good problem to have. Until it comes to the actual writing...
I am currently working on several projects all at once: writing Reconciled (Book 3), revising Asylum for its anniversary re-launch, polishing Outlaw with my critique group. And I just finished my first draft of Time Spinners. (You don't know about that one yet, but I shall share one day soon!) The draw to revise that is strong.
My brain just may explode.
Some people ask if it's tough to keep all the different stories straight. Not really. The tough part comes when I have to walk away from a story to do real life things...then coming back to pick up where I left off. It's hard to recapture the emotion and the momentum.
Still, we persevere. We get it done. We write the story. And we dive back in for more.
I'm glad I have this problem. I wouldn't trade it for the world.
But I sure look forward to bedtime when I can shut off my mind for a little while.
