Welcome to X-DAY of the Operation Awesome A-to-Z Blogging Challenge! This month we're doing 26 posts on WRITING MOTIVATION.
Are you burned out? That's okay! Taking a break from your WIP is sometimes what you need to recharge. Or, are you letting your current WIP sit for the recommended 4+ weeks so you can go back to it with fresh eyes?
My part of our Writing Motivation theme is – Things to work on that still count as writing!
X – Your NeXt Project, Outlining and Research
Is a new idea banging around in your head and not allowing you to focus on your current manuscript? Sometimes getting something started on that new idea is what you need to do so you can get back to your current project.
NOTE: Don't let the shiny new idea take over and derail the completion of your current project! But if you're letting the current project sit for a few weeks, or if you've reached a plot snag and want to give your mind a chance to work on it, try starting something new and see if it helps.
