Yesterday I discussed the unproductive habit of writing one book and expecting instant success. Well today you’re all in for a treat. I’ll be discussing how to create basic productive habits that will allow you to work on multiple witing projects simultaneously.
Ok so you’ve written a book. Great. Now comes the hard part, writing another one. If you’re not in the mood for another book by all means get some short fiction out there. Doesn’t matter if it’s just a short story or a novella, just keep adding credits to your writing resume.
Best way to get this going is to brainstorm. Write an outline of brainstormed ideas and put it into motion. Always have at least 2-3 writing projects in mind so you don’t get hung up on one. Best to go with your creativity and follow through with what interests you. The last thing you want to be doing is thinking of something that will “Sell.” You want to be writing something that is constantly tugging your brain and is screaming to get out of your thoughts and onto the page. This is where your your best writing will usually come from.
Then keep track of your projects. Have fun with them. See which one you can finish first and the next thing you’ll be staring at some finished pieces.
Then the only thing you’ll have to worry about is which one to edit first.
