Writing More Than One Book At A Time

Okay, so I sat down to work on the sequel to my children’s book yesterday and wasn’t ‘feelin’ it.’ Instead, I opened up a whole new document and started writing dialogue for a different book entirely.

Has anyone else had this happen?

The flow of words was so natural and I knew exactly what I wanted to relate to the reader. Granted, it is a far cry from my children’s book, but it is has more of me in it, which I think is why it was so easy to start. Now, to keep it going. I estimated that if I wrote between 1500 and 2000 words per day that I could be finished in thirty days. Of course, we’ll see if I can stick to that schedule since I have three other WIP’s all at different stages of completion.

I’m focusing on them in order of ‘easability.’ Is that a word? Basically, the easier it is for me to write (ideas coming at me clearly) the higher it is on my list. I’ve also determined when I can work on certain books, such as naptime for YA novel and bedtime for children’s book. I’ve reserved morning tea time for the new book I started, which doesn’t leave any time for my Romance novel, which has been hanging in the balance for months. Oh well. I guess I’ll have to make due until Nursery School starts.
