Writer’s A.D.D.

I’m sure many writers have this problem. Jumping from one project to another. Or at least, saying you’re working on one thing but then you change your mind within a month and work on something else. I normally would say that I’m not this jumpy, but it seems that way lately doesn’t it?

So I know I said a couple post back that I was going to start working on a more traditional fantasy White Crow story. Well I lied, I’m not going to work on that. I think my mind is burnt out on White Crow right now. Because even when I tried to think about it, my mind would just drift back to the piece I started last November for NaNoWriMo, Dragons in Space (terrible working title).

I love dragons, always have, always will.

So, now that I’ve moved (see my regular blog for pics soon) I’m ready to get back to writing. I spent most of yesterday looking over what I wrote back in November. And after kicking my self and wanting to cry for how terrible the writing was, I realized I had a good start and I could still work with this.

Starting today I’m going to start from the beginning and rewrite what I have so far and then go from there. I’m hoping I can get this first draft done by November so that I’ll be free to do NaNoWriMo this year. But if that doesn’t happen, that’s okay. I will definitely have this first draft done by the end of the year.

Hm… There goes the whole, submit to agents this year goal I had. *shrug* Oh well, I’ll be ready next year. 🙂

Thanks for reading!

One thought on “Writer’s A.D.D.

  1. I think working on other projects can sometimes help, especially if you fall into a writing slump. I steadily worked on one project only for over a year, and I was to the point where I hated my entire novel. I took a step away from it and started something new, and that seemed to help jumpstart my writing again. I can completely relate though about writer's ADD. Even while focused on the one project, my mind was always dreaming up new ideas. Starting a new project is like buying a new toy! 🙂
