I'm Changing it Up
One of those challenges are the three books I have started but haven't touched in months. I realized, recently, that I'm so far removed from them, their stories, and their characters that I would almost need to start over from scratch.
Not being familiar with them anymore also meant that my inspiration to work on them had died. For a while there, I wondered if my desire to write had left me altogether.
Luckily, I was looking through my folder on my computer where I keep my work, and I ran across a book that I planned to write after Vanished. As is my usual standard, I made a cover and wrote a few paragraphs. When I opened up the file and read through a couple of paragraphs, I was struck by inspiration. It was like a breath of fresh air to feel like the writer I am again. I'm now earnestly working on this story and I'm excited about it.
