I just completed the first chapter of a new WIP! It was so refreshing.
Some of you may know that I was in the middle of a different WIP. You might be wondering why I switched. I came to a point in the old story where things just weren't coming together all the way. I was about to wade through the muck, when a brand new awesome idea came to me. It really was a hard decision to stop the one and start on something new, but after much thought, I think it will be good. I needed a step back from the old and the new idea was the perfect thing to distract me.
Now I can just release my inner excitement about this new story.
And the thing is, the pieces all came to me at once.
I've had the idea for less than a week and I feel like I've already written the whole thing. Of course, I haven't, but hopefully my excitement can carry me through the late nights, writer's blocks, and motherhood blank-mindedness. I want to look my book in the face and say, "Bring it!"
Have you ever switched from one WIP to another? Was it hard for you? Are you a multitasker and work on more than one at a time? Do you ever have to tell your story or characters to 'bring it?'
