Switching Gears

I thought I'd have gotten a lot more done over my summer than I have. Truth is I had a lot of fun with family this summer. Now that the summer is almost over and school is about to begin I have decided to get cracking. I relished in sleeping in and hanging around. That time is over and the time to be productive is moving in.

As of this week I have started working hard, again. No more sleeping in. No more lounging around the house watching television.

I've been working on Midnight Raynne for a while now. However, I've had a slight change of heart recently. I am really not feeling the edit process on this one. As a result I've decided to spend a little time working on another of my projects. I've really been thinking about my character Augusta. I have yet to complete the first draft, but I am about half way there already. I am hopeful that I'll be able to get this finished fairly soon and move on to something else.

Yes, I'll be moving on yet again soon. I have another project that has been shoved to the side for multiple other projects over the past year. I am determined to get that rough draft finished as well.

Of course, I'll be setting that aside too. Depending on when I finish I will either get right into edits or start NaNoWriMo. I'm not sure what I plan on writing this November. I've been hard at work researching for one project since last December that I had planned on writing for NaNoWriMo. Somehow, though, I have come up with a couple other ideas that are possible for November. I guess I'll decide on that project when November comes.

Your Turn -> Do you switch gears often?


  1. As often as I need to in order to keep writing. If I run out of steam on one project, I switch to another. Sooner or later one will captivate me and get finished. Hopefully, yours will too. :-)

  2. That's kind of how I feel too, Linda. Even since I wrote this blog I've started to rethink which project I'm going to delve into and how to approach them. Sorry it took me so long to respond. Hurricane Irene stole my attention. :-)
