As Camp NaNoWriMo nears I’m starting to wonder if I should keep working on this new adult story. While I like where it’s going, I keep looking at my Monarchy series and feeling as if I should just stick with that for a while. I’m tempted to switch my NaNo novel to the fourth one, as I originally planned earlier this year.
I have this terrible habit of getting distracted by other stories. I’ll work for a while on one, and have plans for it to go into a series, then jump to another idea with the same plan. It ends up being a lot of unfinished tales, which normally isn’t an issue since I haven’t published them, but I have published The Argent Star. I’ve been away from the story for a couple of weeks and the distance has made my heart grow even fonder of the characters! I miss them.
I’ll see how the next few days go, but if I continue to feel like this I’m going to be switching. The more I think about it the more reasons I have to work on Monarchy 4 instead of something new. Something new always leads to another something new with me, it seems, and I don’t want to spiral into a bunch of something news and see the Monarchy storyline go unfinished.
Discipline is really something you have to constantly work at. I think it’s time I actually put some effort into that.
