I’ve been working on Wandering this week, but rather sporadically. By that, I don’t mean I’m not putting in the time, but that I haven’t started working on page one and moved forwards. I’ve been shifting through, taking care of some of the low hanging editing-fruit. I will get to the page by page revision, but every time I find something I can improve, I’m improving it, no matter what page it’s on.
My muse, however, has been off in her own world, torturing me with ideas for all kinds of stories. When she’s not trying to push me to expand my short, DWTIL, she’s giving me revelations about WIPS I haven’t been working on for months. Including two ménages, a MMF that is temporarily titled All for My Baby and another contemporary MFM ménage that’s my version of Bonnie and Clyde…and Clyde :D. I don’t want to get into writing either of these works this month (since I have Nano next month, and there is no way they could be done on time. Both ideas are novel long. I don’t want to take the risk that I’d lose momentum by taking a break for a month) but my muse is really torturing me, so I might have to break down and write some, at least quick notes, on some of these works.
This may change my priorities for Nano. Madison and Hunter might be shelved a little longer. But I’m going to try and get to as many of these stories as I can. I have some vacation days to burn at the EDJ and I plan to use them to take a full time writer’s vacation, and make it my job to write.
And even though having an out of control Muse may seem like a problem, I much prefer it over the alternative. No ideas at all.
