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!
