. . . I haven’t written anything for days! Literally!
Ok, so only a couple of days ago I was neck-deep in research and writing my stories. Then, I got distracted.
I can justify the distraction, but it is a distraction, nonetheless. Let me explain.
One of the stories I am working on is the beginning of a multi-volume world. As such, during my research, I should have expected stories and characters to leap out and demand attention. However, I didn’t expect it to be so hard to put them aside and focus on the one I’ve already begun.
It’s, it’s, well, it’s been nearly impossible.
Yet, I must overcome and persevere.
I’ve tried to cut myself some slack and expect that I’ll get back on track in time to finish NaNo successfully, but the time has come to buckle down and force myself to focus past the other characters crowding my brain. So, to that end, I am creating character worksheets, titles of stories, and one-to-two paragraph blurbs. Hopefully, that will stave off the tendency to flit from one story to another so that I can actually focus and be productive again.
To all you NaNo-ers out there, I wish you good luck and great success!
