I'm about to throw in my writer's hat, proclaim myself to be a wannbe, and be resigned to work in retail for the rest of my life. I swear I get to about 20,000 words in a novel and suddenly I'm bored. I start slacking off for a few days. Then I get into watching news, looking at some sort of interesting research, everything from parallel universes and cosmology to conspiracy theories surrounding 9/11. Then I find myself thinking of some other plot line, not just a simple plot line, but I get the opening scene and a whole idea going. Then I end up ditching the previous 20,000 words written on a totally different story, with the intent to work on both at the same time or the earlier one later, but I never get around to it. Does anyone else have this issue. Too many topics, not enough brain power, and too little time to get it all down?
