Why do I keep starting new projects rather than finishing old ones? Is it that the inspiration passes? Am I growing toward better approaches? Am I just too divided to focus?!
Are you like me or have you found ways to be more disciplined? I used to be more disciplined, but working toward deadlines just isn’t conducive or healthy for my current life full of kiddos. I used to just plow through, but I just don’t have that kind of time or energy right now.
Maybe it will all work out. I’ll keep various notes and just skip from project to project until, who knows, I finish five at nearly the same time! 🙂
For a while, I was proud of my publishing record (2012, 2013, 2015, 2016), but publishing just takes too long to keep that up. (CPH, I’m still crossing my fingers about that complete proposal you have from me! Come on, my children’s books seem to be selling well!)
What do you think? Do you allow yourself the flexibility to jump around on projects? Do you think that detracts from mental and writing discipline or just maximizing what little writing time exists? Can I pretend things are simmering away on each project and then I’ll write whatever goodness bubbles up during my quick computer moments?! 😉
At least we have a more reliable computer now. Yay! And I thank God and the cleverness He gave man that resulted in Google Docs and Dropbox!
Starting new projects is good. I think I’ve got some good, viable ideas right now. If I can just get to actually working on them!
Wishing you that very same thing this Advent and Christmas season.
