IWSG - 2015
Welcome to Insecure Writer's Support Group and its first blog-hop for 2015. This group meets the first Wednesday of the month and is hosted by Alex J. Cavanaugh. To visit the IWSG website, click HERE.
I was going to update everyone on what I was working on at the beginning of January, but as I sat back and looked at my projects, I realized I've stalled on them. Not because of disinterest, but rather, I have something rolling around in my mind that is wanting to get out. It's a story about a terrible time in a woman's life that almost took her life. Although I've jotted down ideas and a few scenes, I hesitate leaving my other work unfinished to begin working on this.
How do I work on one piece when my mind feels scattered and keeps going back to this new plot? Have any of you ever experienced this conundrum? I wonder if leaving work unfinished is okay? I can't seem to see the ending of the story I was working on. Perhaps if I let it sit for a while I can come back to it later with a better idea for the end. In the mean time, I can outline this new story and see where it goes.
After reading this circuitous post, can you see my dilemma? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!
Happy New Year, 2015!
