Telbat’s Writer’s Tablet – Inspiration Overload!
[This article was written last year and does not refer to current books, fyi. ;)]
I may get into trouble with my editor for admitting this, but I’ve started yet another book before I finished reworking the manuscript she is waiting on! Sure, I’m plugging along on the edit, but how do I explain the time delay?
Actually, Dee knows me by now. Rarely does a month go by when I’m not brainstorming another novel outline and bouncing the idea off a couple people.
I know many people have real difficulty with writer’s block, but for myself, I have too much writing inspiration, too many ideas—stimulation overload! And there’s never enough time to attack them all!
If a writer doesn’t develop an idea while the idea is hot, the inspiration may flee from view. As long as one project doesn’t suffer under another, I think Dee will understand. Besides, I can’t be the only writer working on more than one manuscript at once… maybe it’s three manuscripts, or five… I’ve lost count…
