I'm having trouble lately because I'm trying to get going on a non-fiction project and worry that while I'm doing so and writing it, that I'll fall out of the habit of writing fiction and have trouble getting back to it. Getting myself to write fiction was a hard won habit and it is shaky enough as it is. I'm still trying to write a tiny bit of fiction everyday but it dissipates my energies from the non-fiction, which is the priority. It is the same with editing fiction, I worry I'll fall out of the habit of writing new words and try to work on another, new story, at the same time as I'm editing. I then end up feeling frazzled, unhappy with either because I feel I didn't give them "proper" attention. So what I want to ask I guess is do you find you have a lot of trouble switching back to writing fiction after you have stopped for awhile, whether to write non-fiction or to edit rough drafts? I know editing is part of the process and needs to be done, I know it should "count" but as a sufferer of perfectionism and OCD my brain just won't quite let it. I'm also a fiction writer at heart and taking this detour to write non-fiction makes me worry I'm making a mistake and should be focussing solely on fiction. Any input would be much appreciated.
