Two Writing Projects at Once?

I was afraid this might happen.Troubled Writer

I’ve been getting ready to work on the hobo novel, but meanwhile I haven’t been able to forget the Jack the Ripper dark fantasy I started to work on and then dropped.

Now they are both demanding attention.

I know some writers can work on more than one thing at a time. I have done this with short stories. But these are novels.

I wasn’t happy with the JTR thing and let it go. A couple of days ago I took another look at it and thought it wasn’t all that bad. Plus, I still like the idea. I just have to find a way to make it work.

So now I am torn. Which novel to work on first?

I think I will blog about the JTR idea a little more tomorrow. Maybe that will help settle things in my mind. When I  write about my ideas and give them space it helps me see them in a better light.

  1. What if you worked on one, one week and the other the next?

    • My brain can’t compartmentalize projects like that, haha. At least not writing project. I tend to lose the voice with one project and can’t find the voice for the other when I do that. No, I’ve tried it before and it just doesn’t work for me. I am jealous of writers who can, though! 🙂
