I always thought people were crazy to have more than one wip going at a time. I’m discovering the error of my thinking.
I’m having trouble finishing my wip. It’s not that I don’t care about the story or that I can’t write it or that I’ve lost it. I just got bored with it because I already know it. I don’t know if that happens to other people and I honestly didn’t know it would happen to me. But it did. Color me shocked.
One of my crit partners decided to run a prompt. I wanted to do something in first person (which I don’t like so much) and I wanted to explore a morally ambiguous character. I never planned on it being anything more than an exercise so I picked something easy to work morally ambiguous into. Vampires. Lo and behold, it wouldn’t stop. So it looks like I have a new wip.
It’s working out well. I get bored with one, I move to the other. I’m liking this so far.
Does anyone else get bored? What do you do about that? And how do you feel about multiple wips?
