HOW MANY BOOKS AT ONCE?
I know some authors work on multiple projects at once and sometimes that actually works for them. I can't really do this. Not at the beginning stages. I have to REALLY get into something and drown myself in it - at least at the beginning - until I can move on. I have to become obsessed. In fact, I can't move on or let go - much like a rabid dog grabbing onto a leg (is that too much?). There are other times when I can do two things at once - when I'm in the painting stages. Then it's okay to multi task. I was thinking of this because someone asked me what I was working on and sort of rejected the thing that I was loving the most. Then said "Have any other ideas?" Well... no.
I shouldn't say I can't work on two things at once. That's not quite true. I have two little notebooks I bought for 2 dollars a piece. They're very tiny and I like them both. Depending on the day I'll write in one or the other. Each has a different story idea. I work at them while I'm at work.
I'm just wondering - how do you guys work?
