The Lure of Starting A New Project

Before you’ve finished the current one. For some reason this always happens to me when I’m almost finished. When I’m this close to being done. And I don’t know why. Although, in all honesty, I’ve never delved too deep into why that is.

And right now the lure of starting a brand new story is almost impossible to resist. But resist I must. Because try as I might I can’t work on two books at once. Just can’t.

And I’m this close!

Great quote on finishing!

And I guess that’s the thing. Once it’s done and submitted it’s out there and things are out of my control.

Which I find scary.

The Hobbit quote. Inspiring. The next book on my list after I finish North & South.

Always knew I had a lot in common with hobbits. So, off I go to finish my quest.

How about you?

If you feel like sharing...

  1. Been there, done that. It’s always a temptation, but you MUST RESIST! Give yourself permission to write down a few notes about the new story so you don’t forget your thoughts and you’ve satisfied the urge to start something new, and then finish your original story. You’ll feel so good for finishing! Best of luck.

    • Thanks Jana! I’m hard at work on those last few scenes and things are coming together. I will feel good when this project is completed. It’s been a long time in the works. I think that makes me extra worried about it. LOL
