A friend of mine was talking about which WIP to work on and why she’d switched from one to another. She mentioned reader input and then we discussed inspiration, because sometimes, to find the words, you need to listen to that nudge from your Muse and follow the inspiration. I’ll admit, I can be flighty when it comes to Works in Progress. This is why I love Scrivener as a writing “platform.” I can easly skip betwseen porjects, drop in a randopm scene, write myself a note, leave a link for further research, or spend some time writing–both intentional while following a plot thread and “free” writing, which is following that spark of an idea..
For every fork in the road, Silver, there are often two paths from which to choose: the one you “should” take and the one you want to take.
Take the second. Always take the second.
Man, Silver, could life rock any more than it does?
FYI, I have notes and scenes for about ten different books*, in addition to scenes that are totally random and I have no clue who the characters are. See? I listen and follow the inspiration because that’s the fort in the road I WANT to take. Even if the fork I SHOULD take is the one that leads to a project under deadline or one that’s close to being finished and I’m just ready to stick a fork in it and say I’m done. 😉 Speaking of being done, I’m just over halfway in the revisions for UNDER THE ASSASSIN’S MOON. If I can fight off distractions and nap attacks, I might actually finish that part of the process today. Tomorrow for sure. What have you “done” lately?
*I have no time or inclincanation because I already have too many series and ideas but a new one hit me last night: the Whiskey Bravo series. Four friends who are now doing…something. Their names? Jackson “Jack” Daniels, Evanston “Evan” Williams, John “Johnnie” Walker, and James “Jim” Beam. All I have to say is, “Iffy, go home. You’re drunk!”
