What Are You Working On?

When you write, do you work on one project or multiple? Do you write in one specific genre or several?

I like to work on more than one writing project at a time. Currently, I am working on two fiction novels and a few pre-teen and children’s books. As I’ve mentioned before, I write when the idea(s) strike or when I’m in the writing zone. I never force myself. So, for example, I may wake up tomorrow morning with ideas roaming around my head for my novel. I’ll sit down and do some writing on that one. I may stop after a bit and pull another file up - maybe the children’s book or maybe the other novel - and I’ll write a little bit on that.

Sometimes I will be writing one story, save that after a bit, and do something else non-writing related.

Don’t forget to give yourself a break; whether you’re writing a book, a blog or anything else, take a break when you feel overwhelmed or tired. Go for a walk, stretch, call a friend or read a book!

Working on several projects is fine, but make sure you take time for you as well.

  1. I tend to do reflective be writing in my hard cover journal or soul searching writing in my devotional journal after spending time in the Word. I honestly only wrote fiction when i had to create lesson plan stories for my preschoolers. I still need to read your novel!!
