One minute I was writing some harmless flash for my blog, the next I couldn't help wondering if what I'd written had the potential to be something more. *sigh* And already, I can't stop thinking about it.
It seems natural to explore new ideas and see where they lead, even before we're completely finished with our current projects. Recently, my amazing friend and critique partner Tina Lynn (@TinaLynn_) mentioned starting a new story, even though she's in the midst of her own revisions. She said she needed a break to create... maybe we all do sometimes.
I don't know whether or not I'll go back to Nameless New Novel. Things seem promising, but who knows? Either way, I'm not abandoning my current manuscript. I love it and I want all the best for it. I still think it could be The One.... however..... *eyes Nameless New Novel* I do feel a spark ;)
How do you keep yourself from chasing a new story, when you know you still have a long way to go with your current wip? Do you commit to every story you start? Or are you like me, with countless story flings, a few of which go on to become completed manuscripts?
