I still can’t decide if it’s a blessing or a curse to have so many WIPs crowding my head. A few weeks back, I stated that I had managed to narrow down my list of active WIPs to just a few. Now, after making such a bold proclamation, some of the others are now nudging me as well.
Consider this, for example. A few months ago, I wrote a bit of text that was meant to be a short story. Then somehow I ended up writing about 7,000 more words that was somewhat related to it. A horror story at its core, there are some very non-horror elements to it such as a pregnant woman (whom I am very timid about building) and a young boy’s rather normal and outdoorsy past (which I cringe when I think about writing it…gah, I hate nature).
On top of that, there is another WIP centered around an elderly couple.
And another about a post-apocalyptic rural camp of sorts and how they come to cope with their new and miserable world (hint: lots of blood and human monsters).
Oh and remember that odd little YA project Keyholes that had be doubting my skills as a writer last year? So yeah, that’s back now apparently. (I would love the assistance of a beta reader for the first 60 or so pages of this one to tell me if it’s any good or not…)
So yes, back to the ever-changing grind. How’s YOUR WIP pile treating you?
