The hardest thing about writing

Some writers say that combating writers block can be the most difficult thing about writing. For me, the opposite is sometimes true. There are times when I have three or more story lines competing for my attention. When this happens, I have difficulty concentrating on my current project because I don't want to lose the unrelated ideas that are swimming around in my head. I don't want to spend too much time on those things either for fear of losing momentum on the project in the works. It's a crazy conundrum really.

I am currently working on chapter three of "At Second Sight" and a completely unrelated idea came to me this morning. So unrelated, it has nothing to do with the paranormal at all! I am excited about the prospect of creating a work from this idea but I really wish it would patiently wait its turn! All I can do is jot the idea down and hope that my acknowledgement of it will be enough to subdue it for now!
