A new beginning…

I found a new story to write about, and it’s been really great to get into it. I think I’ve finally found something that will make me excited. It’s still in the mystery area, but there is a fantasy/sci fi element going on, even some religious aspects.

I’ve already written almost 3000 words in a few hours this weekend. The more stuff I write the better. I’m not abandoning my old story, but I think writing this one will help me finish the other. I don’t want to get ahead of myself, but I wanted to share the good news, since these posts have been… well a bit depressing of late.
I’ve also started to run again. I hope to make it at least three times this week. I’m working myself up to 4-5 30 minute sessions a week. It’s ambitious, but doable.
Have any of you tried to write concurrently, or bailed on a story to start another?
or for non-writer friends, any news to share?

  1. That’s great you have a new idea to be excited about! I think it’s hard to work on something when you don’t have any enthusiasm, so hopefully that will get you back into it. 🙂

    Good luck with the running!

    Thanks Mel. I agree, it was time to set the other story aside. I’ve already made more progress on this story then the other.

    We’ll see how the running goes 🙂 I have to golf today, so I’ll have to run tomorrow. Thanks for the comment 🙂
