Here's my dilemma...Awhile ago (okay, like five years ago) I started writing a novel that I would describe as my baby. Its my absolute favorite novel idea I've ever come up with, and that's probably why its still not finished. I'm constantly rewriting it and its probably never going to be good enough in my perfectionist eyes. Of course that is a whole other topic. Back to my main point...in order to take a break from this novel, since it was going nowhere and I had terrible writer's block, I started writing another one that I would say I enjoy, maybe not love as much as the other, but enjoy nevertheless. My problem is now I'm feeling inspired to write the first one again, but if I go back to that, I fear I won't finish the one I am working on and since I've put so much time into it I just can't simply leave it hanging. So my question for all of you is, how do you balance between writing two different books? Good or bad idea? I'm debating if I could handle working on both at the same time but I don't know, its not something I've ever done before. Any thought or comment is appreciated.
