You know, it turns out I already knew the answer to yesterday's question and I just was afraid to say it out loud. So for those of you who publicly and privately reassured me that it's okay to change my mind, even after 15,000 words...
And you know what else? It turns out that as soon as I let it be okay to relegate the WIP to the dark recesses of my computer memory:
I FOUND IT!
And by it, I mean IT. The book I've been wanting to write... a whole slew of books... of ideas and characters and a direction I want my entire writing and career to go in.
Can someone say anvil off my shoulders????
Just by letting go of the idea I was stubbornly holding on to because I was afraid of not finishing something.... I have found my joy and love and excitement for writing again.
I'll write more about it later. For now, I'm off to work on the new WIP. I haven't been this excited about my writing since I finished the final pages of SKON.
