I’m jealous of my writer friends who work on one project at a time.
I can’t do that. I have way too many ideas.
In order to manage my insanity, I’ve decided to only work on three writing projects per day.
- Working on story edits for One Woman’s Junk.
- Writing the first draft of Hitwoman 21.
- Writing a screenplay, which we can call Monsters. (This is my “fun” project and I’m trying to limit myself to only working on it for about 15 -20 minutes per day.)
There are at least three other projects I’d like to be dabbling with, but I’ve got deadlines I’m striving to meet on One Woman’s Junk and Hitwoman 21, so they’re my highest priority.
I’m also trying an experiment where I’m tracking, in this little notebook, how much time I spend on each project and WHEN I work on them
After only a few days this is providing some interesting data that may cause me to revamp my workday schedule. More on that at another time.

I’m the same way. My current WIP was inspired by several ideas but of course new ideas constantly pop up and with it prequels, sequels, and more and I’m not even a quarter way through with my novel.
Better to have a busy brain than an empty one! 😉
