I know that this soounds like an odd combination, but hear is what I am referring to as the place that i want to take this. I have found that in order to be more productive as a writer I need focus, but I also need diversity in my day to day writing so that I don’t get bored. I don’t want too much focus so that I end up getting bored and I don’t want to get too diversified so that I lose my focus.
I recently read some place that you should never have more than five projects going at once. In the same token, I don’t think that we should have fewer than three going at a time. In December, I took myself down to three projects and finished two of them. Unfortunately, that third project I had slowed way down in doing because I had a number of other projects that I wanted to write as well. Not that I didn’t work on it, I did. The project, was Book IV in the Locket Saga: Sailing Under the Black Flag. It is now in the hands of my first beta reader.
