Focus. That is what I am always being told to do. I think lack of focus is the catalyst of procrastination.
And since I made this decision, writing has been more satisfying. the story that has been trying to escape for ages is finally beginning to take shape. It is in the outlining stage at the moment, but I am getting a clearer idea of where it is going to go. This will be much better than my previous stop-starts where I get a few chapters in and find out that I am going in the wrong direction.
I will be blogging more about the outlining process as I go through it with this book. I must say, the excitement I felt at finally writing down a one sentence premise is something I have never experienced before. I know I am on the right track. And thankfully, no one other than my Fiance know what that sentence is. Keeping it quiet is very tough, but I don't want to share it with the world. Maybe when I am near the end, I will.
Today I will be going to the local Police HQ for their annual open day. We go every year. It is interesting though only useful to crime writer's if you can get them to give you some time. It is a very busy event. I will post more on that next week.
If you are struggling to focus, perhaps you have too many things going on at once?
As they say, too many cooks spoil the broth. In this case, too many projects spoil the focus.
