A Question for the Audience

Filed under: Uncategorized — coffeegirl88 @ 1:43 am

Here’s one for the crowd.  How do you find the stamina to stick to one project?   Or do you? 

I’ll admit, my current wip is still in the early stages of creation despite the fact that this is the . . . fourth or fifth hero I’ve created for this story.  I swear,  my heroine isn’t that hard on men, truly.  Because of this unfortunately, it’s a struggle, I know some parts of this story so damn well, but others, it’s not there yet. 

So what have I done?  I’m thinking of other stories.  Doesn’t help much that the last three novels I’ve read are all romantic thrillers.  It’s gotten that part of my brain lit up.  Too bad I can’t write thrillers.  No, I’m not fishing for compliments here.  I can’t do thrillers alone.  I would however, because I really am this hard-headed, write them with a long lost mentor.  On the up side of all this I do have a story or two that would quench this particular thirst, but it’s not the project I’m currently working on.  Oh and to make matters all the more muddy, I’ve been thinking about “Redemption” for the millionth time.  Funny  how when I’m deep into that story I’d rather do anything else, like laundry.

Of course a chunk of this confusion is attributed to my playing the “Top 25” on my iPod.  Want to guess what that’s mostly composed of?  You guess it.  Story play lists for at least four separate projects.  I needed some music to play video games to.  Well, I didn’t need the music just like I didn’t need the time suck but I did it anyway.  At least now, at 1:37am I’m finally tired.  Normally I’d read until I’m tired but the last time or two has found me fighting to finish the last 100 pages of a book at 3am.

Well, Thievery Corporation has finally come up on the play list rotation.  I’m going to log off, get lost in the music for a little then it’s off to sleep.

  3. This is a great blog! I am not a writer (I’m a painter), but I really like seeing what you folks doing.

    Being good at only one thing makes it easier to stay on task. Once you “Cool-Hand-Luke” your life, sticking to the subject becomes second nature.

  4. Thanks for stopping by Lavanna, I’m defintely thinking I’m a one task girl. Might have a couple simmering, but I can only pay attention to one at a time.
