Juggling multiple projects

Head hopping (more about what it is and why it’s unpopular here) and here) usually refers to the distracting business of changing the viewpoint character without notice. Many readers find the practice irritating and editors usually advise against it.

While reading for pleasure, I prefer one point of view for a scene, chapters and even entire books in a single POV are fine with me.

The kind of head hopping plaguing me at the moment is similar, but more properly known as story hopping. There are writers who work on multiple novels at the same time. Not me. Well, not on purpose.

Simply Irresistible and A Scarlet past are both in edits while the third mech adventure is still unfolding, plus the usual background clamor from the dozens of unwritten stories continues to rumble.

Of course, I can only actually work on one story at a time, but my brain flits from one to the other since all three are active. Even with the mechs set on simmer I’m in overload mode. :pinch:

Do you prefer to concentrate on one task at a time or do enjoy juggling projects?

    I’m with you, Evanne. I draft one book at a time, but I always keep a notebook handy for all those other stories clamoring at me. If only I could write fast enough to keep up with my ideas.

    I’m picturing you flipping open your notebook with an adorable frown and scribbling furiously. Your excitable imagination is a gift, but not always an easy one to live with. Thanks for stopping by Allie! :heart:
