Juggling is so hard to do!

I have to make a confession here. I am finding it so hard to juggle everything lately. The ball that seems to be dropping a lot lately is my writing. I am finding it difficult to fit it in. I have a lot of story outlines going on right now but my WIP is not flowing at the moment. Which has me asking the question, is it ok to put a WIP on hold for a while and work on something else. Maybe, my problem is that I am such a linear thinker. In my head, I'm thinking that I need to finish what I am working on before moving to the next topic. It's probably not the best way to think when you are writing. Or is it that I haven't had time to sit down and do any sustained writing and I am out of practice. I didn't have this problem with my first manuscript. The words just seems to flow. I was always writing. Even at work, when I had a break, I would write on scraps of paper.

I think that tonight, my plan will be to do some free writing and see what comes out it.

Peace out,

  1. It happens to all of us. Work on something else until your muse returns for the other wip.
