My WIPs

As with most writers, we tend to have more than one writing project in the works. This didn’t use to me though. When I first started my writing journey I kept it to one project at a time. That evolved to me writing notes and ideas down of potential projects. Sadly and happily that notebook has exploded into pages and pages of thoughts for writing adventures. Added to that is a list of people who have expressed an interested in collaborating with me for potential projects. A few years has gone by since I first started and now I have projects out of my yang yang.

At the moment this is what I have: finishing Jasper 3 which is a children’s series based on my Amazon parrot, finishing Lost Faith, my NaNoWriMo book winner from 2013, which is a YA book based in the future, finishing A Woman of Color, my NaNoWriMo book winner from 2011, an adult true life story, finalizing the pictures for Squirrel Mafia which is a true comic relief story andmy latest interview for the magazine I now freelance for

Eventually I will get to Moe’s Cafe which is adult fiction and my first attempt at a crime story. This was my NaNoWriMo book winner for 2012. I have now lovingly labeled my notebook of ideas to “Whenever I have time to write these books” notebook.

When I went over the list in my head this past weekend I had realized I was interchanging from children to YA to adult and back and have been doing this for the last few weeks. I am surprised how easily I can transcend from different characters and plots. But maybe it is easy since the characters and their lives are so vivid in my head and have been for so long they are now part of my brain function.

Whatever the case, these are the projects I am working on to keep me busy and in some case sane from everyday life.

  1. I can sympathise – I resisted working on more than one WIP at a time for so long until I felt my brain was about to explode, having all these competing voices, begging to be written. All the best with all your WIPs 🙂
