Insecure Writers Support Group
The other month, a friend and confidant of mine mentioned I might have a problem. Obviously I denied it, I didn't want it to be true, but I cannot help but see her point.
The gist of it was that although I have some really great ideas, I seem to be getting distracted by a new exciting idea before I actually start developing it properly.
And as I had been in the middle of explaining my latest exciting idea, a small part of me realised she was right.
Which made me a little... sad? Because I hate that feeling, when you look back on that great new idea you started and wonder where all the excitement went. When did it stop consuming all your thought? The world is there, the premise, the characters, you even know bits of the plot.
So where did the urgency go?
The initial rush may have dissipated somewhat, but I still love my ideas, and for me multitasking works. I never have to force myself to write for a story I'm not feeling at that moment. I write for the ones that have my attention.
They all get a little love :)
