S.O.S! *Miss Adventure shoots off a flare and waves hands madly over her head*
So, my projects on the table are finish editing my completed ms and resubmit to an agent who asked me to, as well as finish my current wip which is only six scenes away from completion. Six blasted scenes!
And here comes those annoying little ideas and they creep in, little by little, until I’m forced to at least write them down. And once I’ve gotten the ideas written down, I think okay, now I can get back to work. But I can’t! My mind strays to those enticing ideas and I scream at myself “Only six more scenes!” Come on, you can do it!
I’ll write another line and stop to think about what’s next...and they creep back in. So this blog is a cry for help! How can I focus on the projects at hand when I have all these other brilliant ideas slithering around in my mind tantalizing me to come and write them!
So, I think to myself what can I do to stay focus other than large doses of coffee...I turn off the TV, the radio, welcome the silence and attempt to get this done. Nope, it doesn't work. The silence allows the little voices to get louder. What else can I do to help me focus on what needs to get done. I’d love to know some new ideas, or old ideas...or any ideas. HELP‼
