Is there such a thing as W.A.D.D.? (Writer’s Attention Deficit Disorder.) If so, I must have it.

See, every time I get to the 20,000 word count on a new manuscript, I’m hit with a sudden desire and inspiration to work on a different book. Like now. In December, I chose to not work on a funny novel because I didn’t feel like being funny. Then later, I stopped working on a serious novel because I didn’t feel like being serious. Instead, I started a new novel that’s both funny and serious. But now . . . I want to go back and finish the funny one. Or the serious one. Anything but the funny/serious one, even though it is really funny . . . and serious.

Have I lost you yet?

But no, I’m gonna finish the funny/serious one because I have a writing challenge with a friend that we finish them by Valentine’s Day. (Why Valentine’s Day, we have no clue.) And then I’ll reward myself by finishing either the funny one or the serious one.

Or . . . I might start a mystery one. 😉
