Watcha Say Wednesday: Are You a Juggler?
I have been a busy little bee since we last spoke. I've got the new YA up to about 15,000 words. I've nicknamed it The Hunting Moon (working title). I've retrieved Iron Thirst from exile and started revising. I've become addicted to Twitter thanks to all the funny, clever people that hang out there. Think the last one is not helpful? Well, when you receive horrible critiques, surprise emails, or are just having a bad day and great friends pull you off the ceiling, calm you, and put you back on your feet - you'll see. (Love you guys!) Like the blogosphere, it's a great support system - but more instantaneous.
Now, what was I talking about? Point. I had a point. *scratches temple* Oh, yeah.
In the past, I've had a problem balancing multiple projects. I will be flying by, typing away on a new WIP. Then I'll decide to go back and revise Iron Thirst. I become so involved with my first love that ideas stop flowing for the new WIP, and it gets dropped by the wayside.
This go round, I am more focused (or so I'm telling myself), but I fear it will happen.
Which brings me to this week's Watcha Say Wednesday.
How many balls do you keep in the air? Do you only work on one WIP at a time, or are you a polynovelist (I think I just made that up. I wrote this in religion class.)
Do you wait until your MS is near perfection before you start a new WIP, or do you have a process such as revising one while writing another?
Answer what speaks to you; ignore the rest. But do tell - I'm quite curious.
