Looking forward to reading your stories!! :-)

For me, I find it helps to work on two projects at once.

Donna Cummings

Liz, you're a sweetie. :) I like having multiple projects to work on--which I mentioned in another recent post, didn't I? Maybe I'm just trying to convince myself of that. LOL

Kari Marie

This is such good advice! I have a few stories running around in my head, but I've been avoiding them in favor of my revisions, which have started to feel stale. Maybe I should freshen up with a short story.

Donna Cummings

Kari Marie, I like to go back and re-read some of these snippets sometimes. It kind of inspires me, to see what my brain came up with, and it does freshen things up a bit. Good luck with your short story!

I am in the process of dismantling what I 'mantled' and you're right.

It is hard on the soul.

I'm spending so much time on something that renders seemingly NO PROGRESS (in fact, I'm losing word and page count as I cut stuff I see I don't need...)

But it is necessary.

Can't wait to see your scattered pieces picked back up and made whole again.

Donna Cummings

Julie, I joked on Twitter the other day that if I cut any more from this WIP, it would be a bookmark instead of a book. LOL So I definitely sympathize. I took a couple days off from reassembling this thing, so I better get back to it before I forget what goes where!

P.S. You've been Tagged!! See my blog today for the deets. Don't feel obligated to play, though. Totally optional.

Donna Cummings

Thanks, Liz! I'll definitely check it out. :)
