We all know it happens. We’re set on a project and are chugging along working on it when something else pops up. Something pretty and shiny and new and we want to drop the current project and jump on this new one.
Because the new one is exciting. It’s different. It promises all sorts of things. It is full of potential. It is a new beginning.
But sooner or later that brand spanking new idea is going to stop being fun and is going to become just as much work as your current project.
Think of your novel as a relationship – a long term relationship. You fall in love with the idea of it, you spend time getting to know it (plotting), and you commit yourself to it, to seeing it through, “for better or for worse, in sickness and in health, until ‘The End’ do us part.”
