Do you ever feel weighed down by your current WIP (or series)?
I’m a creative person. My brain is always ticking. I usually get three or four ideas a day for stories, characters, settings, plots (etc). However, because I’m in the middle of a (stalled) WIP series, I feel I can’t act on anything new. I have a six-book series in my head I’m dying to write, an idea for a book(s) I’m keen to flesh out, and now a new idea has crept in that needs exploring. But I feel if I do, I’m going to give up any chance of finishing my current WIP (which I’m no longer writing because I’m stalled)…
