Busy, busy, busy so the theme for this month's Insecure Writer's Support Group is WRITING WOES, TOO MANY STORIES.
I love to write but lately I find it hard to carve out dedicated time. Too much life going on while we are in the US. Seeing family and friends, catching up on movies we can't see in Ecuador, sorting through things in order to simplify life when we are living in the RV for 2-3 months, shopping for things to take back to Ecuador...I could go on and on.
But worse than that is knowing I need to work on book three in my Klondike Mystery series and SUDDENLY having a new series pop into my head. Oh no! I can't go there...but now I have a kick-ass heroine ready to have me write her story! I have her name, some of her back story and character quirks.
What do you do when you are already fighting the time battle, have your To Do list defined and a NEW CHARACTER starts bugging you to tell their story? :(
