I'm liking it a lot--I don't like being stuck, so when I've hit a wall on one story, I can flip to another and still be productive.
|Note: This is not me.|
If I can't write on any of then, that's a big red flag there's something else going on.
Such as, I'm avoiding something. Or I need a break. Or I've been buried beneath a pile of undone laundry that's just taken over the house. Zombie laundry.
Whatever. It's always something.
I used to think that me being stuck was a bit of a cop-out. I had a rather linear interpretation of being stuck: it meant I wasn't trying hard enough.
Well, really now. How unwriterly of me, how unimaginative. There are a hundred reasons I could be stuck. (To wit, the zombie laundry pile.)
|Note: The empty creative well. Deep, huh?|
Got to make sure it gets refilled.
Fortunately, a change can be as good as a break, and that's where time-travelling comes into play.

It's good to travel.
When you read my stories, I hope they make you feel like you're travelling too!
