Hey everyone. I browsed through various other motivation threads, but I decided it would be best to get some advice for my specific situation. To get right to the point, I have two novels going right now. Novel A is my pride and magnum opus, and I've been working on this story for the past 6 years. Novel B is my newer work. Basically, Novel A is too massive of a story to publish as my first work. For one, it's part of a series, and for another, it will most likely breach that word count limit that publishers immediately reject. This delimma gave birth to Novel B. Novel B fulfills all of the roles Novel A can't: Its a stand-alone story, it's shorter, and it's a good platform to test the publishing waters with. I'm satisfied with the plot and it has all of the creative flair I'm wanting. The problem is, I want to make Novel A. I want to so badly that Novel B gets forced into a status that I don't want it to be, a gateway for Novel A. I'd love to consider it its own work and be passionate about it alone, but I just don't have the drive for writing it as I do my magnum opus. And so, I don't write. I procrastinate. I know the first response I'm going to get is "force yourself to write", but if I force myself, my writing will be dull and filled with no passion. When I'm really in the mood and really get into the zone, my writing improves tremendously. Anyone have any ideas? Should I just stop complaining and try to write Novel B?
