Quick! Call for back-up!

I have become, over the years, fairly disciplined at making my brain perform on command. But writing – though a job – is also a creative process.  It doesn’t always behave according to plan. So when I am working on a major project, I like to have a back-up project. 


Or two.

Today, when words wouldn’t come for the major project, Éire’s Viking, they came for one of the back-up projects.  And my head meandered to a novella I have circling. 

Yesterday, I met the word count goal for the major project. Today, I exceeded the goal for the back-up.  It was a good day. Productive.

That counts as a win.

Do you have a back-up?

    A backup. Yes, I need one of those. I guess, when I think about it, I kinda do have backups…but thinking about them that way might help me be more productive with them. If any of that makes sense, lol. 🙂

      It makes all kinds of sense to me. Yes, think about them productively. As Works in Progress instead of just scribbles. 🙂
