I’d been slowing down on one project (the one with a deadline), finding it harder to produce more words each day. I’d only been working on it for the past ten days, since I’d had limited writing time. Tonight I had a little more time, so I decided to hop between it and another story. Eureka! Things started flowing more easily. I really should have at least two projects in rotation.
I don’t know why it took me so long to try this technique. I’m never content with one thing when it comes to entertaining my brain. I always read at least three books at a time. I prefer listening to music on my own because I’ll start listening to one song, then decide to skip to the next. I should have known that the output of my brain would function better on multiple channels, since that’s how I prefer my input.
