Since I started my first draft a week ago, I’ve changed much of my plot that I spent weeks perfecting. I’ve also had a great idea for a different book. Although, I have to admit that many ideas sound great in my head but aren’t as great when I get them on paper. I’m ready to start plotting this one to find out. I’ve also had an idea about how to revise a book I wrote several years ago.
I’m resisting all my urges to push this work in progress aside to work on something else, and I’m still on track with 1,000 words a day! I just need to stick with it.
Why is it that you get a great idea for a different book when you’ve just started a first draft? Is it because the creative juices are flowing? Is it because I’m so good at procrastinating that I don’t even realize I’m doing it?
