From short story to novel...I think

The feeling you get when you finish a story is indescribable.  It means you set out to do something AND did it.  But in the world of writing sometimes the end in a story does not mean the end for the writer.

From editing to rewrites to correct plot holes and tie the story threads together, The end is often just the beginning which can sometimes be sad and frustrating to a writer.

Can't get a word in edgewise.

It never fails, as soon as I sit down to work on a WIP - I am immediately flooded with ideas from/for other projects.  And while inspiration is great (writing really sucks without it) it can be distracting and ultimately lead to a total lack of progress across the board.  This either leaves me face down on my desk with sticky notes and crumpled notes scattered everywhere taunting me as I wonder what went wrong or locked into a one woman Angry Birds marathon (my distraction of choice).

Sadly this has been my story for the past few months. Then right before Christmas, an wonderful thing happened (the best gift ever for me).  And it changed my approach to getting the stories in my head on paper (or laptop screen).
