When a New Idea Overrides Sensibility

I’ve finished drafting the first five chapters of the Bloodstained Shadows series, and posted those rough drafts to Patreon, but I find myself uncontrollably pulled to begin writing a different series. And so I am…

Don’t get me wrong, the Bloodstained Shadows WIP is still my primary focus. Which is difficult to maintain since I’m so sucked into this new Victorian era, steampunky-ish, dark sci-fi world. I’ve been researching the Victorian era, with an emphasis on 1870s Massachusetts (because for some unknown reason that feels like the perfect time period to start in), for the past few days.

It’s not even one of the two WIPs I already put on the back burner in order to keep my focus centered on the universe of Shadow Cove! Really, the problem is that my mind insists on creating too many completely different universes at once. And I suppose there are far too many people trapped in my head to all live in the same universe. That could be a part of it.

And yet…

I’m not complaining. I’m blessed to have so much inspiration, to fall in love with so many universes, so many complex and interesting characters – or, really, people. I just wish that blessing also came with a few extra, quiet, time-standing-still, nothing-else-to-do hours in the day!

Must type faster!

Launching a Patreon Page

Thanks for taking an interest in what I have to say! You must be very bored. 😉 I kid, I kid.

I have far too many ideas, too much inspiration, and way too many storylines to ever be able to write them all down. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining about that. I’m just complaining about the lack of time to create as many universes as plague my mind. Guess I’m just going to have to come to terms with the fact I’m likely to die with a laptop in hand.

So to help keep me on track with what I’m working on creatively, and make more time for it, I’ve decided to launch a Patreon Page. I’m really excited about this endeavor. Now… back to that WIP!
