Nothing to See Here

In Challenges, Goals on February 26, 2012 at 2:40 pm

Well. I’ve learned a few things this week.

  1. I cannot focus when I have multiple projects going on. Two weeks in a row was a dismal failure.
  2. Writing two novels at the same time is like playing heavy metal and club music at once. Completely out of sync and annoying as hell. Besides, I don’t want them to sound the same. They’re completely different story lines, and I caught myself reusing phrases in both. Ugh.
  3. The weekends are no longer my catch up days. Since SuperChef started his job, it’s now MY job to keep the kids occupied while he tries to get his recipe blog updated and get new recipes out. When I had the EDJ, he kept them occupied so I could write when I could. It’s only fair. 🙂

So what now? I had about 1500 words or so on Friday. That was awesome. Nothing to write home about yesterday or today (so far). All I can do is write off this week as a learning experience, and continue pounding out the words.

To make up for the past two weeks’ experiment, I’ve decided I’m going to spend this week completely focused on No Dragon, No Problem. I’ll get it edited and out. Then move on to one of my works in progress. That’s it for me, guys. I hope your week was far more productive!

Keep Writing!


This is a blog hop! Check out other awesome writers here!

  1. I always find it fun to read about other writer’s processes. I almost NEED to be at work on several things at once… but usually not several of the same genre…. I can work on two poems, but it is more like cooking a meal with several pots going at once. I don’t know if I could write two novels at once… never even thought of trying!

    I’m glad to hear you figured out what works (and what doesn’t) for you. Brava, several times over!

    • Thanks Julia! I used to be able to multitask really well. Somehow my writing has evolved into what it is now. I can’t say I don’t like the results…cuz I love them. But I was in such a hurry that I fell back on old habits. Thanks for stopping by and keep writing!
