What do you do when you've inadvertently started three books, and all three are unputdownables?
I ALWAYS have more than one book "going on" at a time! Right now, on my bedstand, there are probably half-dozen. I just let my mood at the time determine which one I pick up.Some nights, though, I may read parts of several.
PUT THEM ALL DOWN AND WRITE!!! Okay, okay, I know that's truly not possible...Have you tried cloning yourself? :)
I frequently have two or three on the go.Isn't it lovely to have them waiting?
Give all three to hubby and say, "Hide two and bring one back to me."He makes the decision and the other two are "gone" for a while.Just a thought. I'm terrible at decisions sometimes, especially when it comes to books.
My problem not being the number of stories on the go, but mixing the characters up. I've found myself writing a character very similar to one on the other story! Now that's a problem! LOL.
Lately my problem's been having three books in progress and not being compelled to go back to any of them! I WISH I had your problem.One of the not-so-compelling books is NEVER LET ME GO; anyone have a better time with this? I so want to love the book...I like Anissa's solution to your dilemma, and I think I can solve mine by copying your reading list.
p.s. how weird that you posted about books being released on Tuesdays, and I just learned that my book will be released...on a Tuesday!...and I didn't know either of those things before today.Cosmically cool!
Erik! You don't know how happy I am to hear I'm not the only one. (Er, I really meant: to hear I'm not crazy.) :)Starvingwritenow, boy, I wish I could! I think DH would balk, though. I'm already two handfuls, LOL.Bernita, yes, kinda, sometimes, LOL. You're right, though. I just want to FINISH a book!
Anissa, for a second I thought starvingwritenow had cloned me, and commented on my blog. :-) That totally sounds like a solution I'd use, LOL! Thanks for stopping by! J.H. Bogran, very true! That would definitely be a problem.Therese, I hate when that happens! That's the worst! I went through that last summer. So cool about the Tuesday release, Therese!
Unfortunately, my problem lately has been more like Theresa's - none of them are "grabbing" me. I'd like to have some "un-put-downables" right now. Maybe you can give me some recommendations. :)
