“Two Roads Diverged in a Yellow Wood…”
Today I’m in the particular swivet known as “Which Should I Work On?”. I’m talking about my own writing, not clients’ projects which follow a more easily-decided schedule. I have two unfinished projects of my own (more than that actually, but two that are extremely timely) and last night at dinner with another novelist I got great encouragement to focus on the one I hadn’t been thinking about lately.
So after dinner I went searching round the house for it. Found it in only the second room I tried. It was under the guest room bed. The colleague I had lunch with today responded to this story with, “Talk about hiding money under the mattress.”
I started reading my old draft last night, thought it pretty good, though I know it’s going to need a stronger ending. This afternoon my ambition is to make good progress on some book or another, and not fritter too much of my time asking myself which one.
