Usually I can focus down on a project and work on it for a while, but after getting through one round of revisions on book 3 during Camp NaNoWriMo I got distracted by other side projects.
These side projects are helpful because for me it fills in the gaps that the reader won’t see and if it’s something that can come back in later, cool. If not, I know what those people were doing at the time. Maybe I’ll have something I can share later.
I just feel a little guilty for not focusing fully on the current major project. I guess it gives me something else to do instead of pacing nervously as Shattered Illusions gets closer to release.
