"Oooo, a new story...I want that. NOW!" My inner writer child screams.
"You have to finish this one first." My outer rational mom explains.
"No, I don't want that one anymore. I want that shiny new one. Give me! Give me!"
"No, you have to wait. You're almost done with this one. Now sit down and help me clean up the mess you left in chapter 4."
"Aww," My inner writer child sulks, but sits down to help.
"You'll thank me later," My outer rational mom says; knowing the inner writer child is learning an important lesson. The inner writer child sticks her tongue out every time the spell check highlights a word.
So, now that I've opened my brain and let some of my crazy out, it's your turn. You don't have to share your inner dialog (unless you want to) just answer the question. I would love to talk about this with you.
BTW: I am on vacation today and am hopefully answering any questions and comments from the beach. YEAH ME! Feel free to virtually put your toes in the sand and join me :)
What do you do when a great idea hits and you're still working on something else?
Thanks again for stopping by and a big THANKS to Leah Braemel for having me as a guest on her blog. As a special thanks stop by my contest blog for your chance to win my book and a T-shirt! Good Luck!
