I finished my 6th book. And now I move onto and write my next novel, right? Making that decision isn't so easy for me. You've heard of writer's block? I have writer's flow, or overflow. Should I work on and finish the book that has 80K + words written so far? Or how about the non-fiction book? Or maybe work on the one that I just started writing that has only 5K words and has a really interesting theme. There will be research so maybe I should finish the novel that I'm into for 30K + words.

Focus. That's always my problem and my biggest challenge. Where to put my time. My interests change from day-to-day, which is mostly a good thing, but I feel stretched too thin. And with all these novels started, it seems to take too long to actually finally finish a book. Instead of deciding on one, I'll continue to do what I've been doing. I'll spend a few days on this one, then I'll jump over to the non-fiction book (I have two of those I'm working on). Then spend some time on this one until another idea comes to me on one of those nights when I just can't get to sleep. I'll take some notes with my lighted pen and then sit down at my computer in the morning and write up a synopsis and maybe come up with my main characters and a story outline.

One thing I know for sure. I'm never bored with writing!
