For the past two years all I have thought about is writing. I have one manuscript finished waiting to be picked up for revisions and a few that are half ass because I can’t seem to get my groove on. The voices in my head are driving me insane, but lately I couldn’t bring myself to sit down and write for a few hours. Deciding a couple of weeks ago to take a break from everything was a no brainer, I needed it. I attempted to stay away form the Internet, stayed away from writing and even reading which was harder to do since not having something to read sends me into withdrawals. My problem wasn’t that I didn’t want to write, it’s that I have too much to write. See in my head I have a dozen people talking to me, and trying to get to know each of them got to be too much. So I am trying to focus on one thing at a time. Last week I gave myself a break, cleared my mind, took a few deep breathes and now I am back —I think.
Instead of jumping right into the writing though, I have decided to go back to the half ass WIPS and see if they can still be salvaged. I mean, these manuscripts are well worth salvaging, some of which have words counts of 25,000 to 65,000, those could very well be novels in the next few months…
How many stories are in your head? Better yet, how many half ass WIPS are sitting in your hard drive? I have four, can you beat that?
