In my mind I made a writing plan for the summer. Last year I wrote a first draft of a novel entitled “Cancel”. Through the winter I’d continued my “Rembrandt Parables”. For the sake of variety and to keep things fresh, I decided to spend the months of July and August editing “Cancel”.
Today it’s July 3rd and I’m still writing “Rembrandt Parables”. When I finish one story another workable idea seems to come. Yesterday I was working on a story when another “Rembrandt Parable” idea flashed through my mind. I quickly wrote it down and returned to the original story. There doesn’t seem to be a convenient pause in this series. I want to work on my novel, but I also don’t want to take a break from the Rembrandt while I’m on a roll.
What to do, what to do.
