I have this history of going between all of my stories. I thought it was beneficial for the longest time. I used to be able to bounce between idea and idea. However, I have recently printed off a few of my stories in which I did this.
It did not work out well in the end.
I found the story that I worked on consistently had a better flow and overall seemed more successful.
This is when I began to realize if I want to be successful with my writing that I can take notes or write little pieces for the other works to build on later when I can lay it out. I cannot jump from story to story. It doesn’t work for me.
I know many others who can go from piece to piece (In many professions) and I applaud them. It did not work well for me, but for them it is part of their success. It is awesome to see where my growth needs to come from and what is and is not beneficial to me.…
Taking to the keyboard and hammering things into a story when my brain is mimicking a squirrel at a rave is not it.
It did give way for some awesome ideas though.
I enjoy figuring out my true process and taking it one day at a time. So, I will let everyone know what the next change is when it finds me.
