Another Writing Course

A while ago I invested in another writing course, this one was how to write fiction for adults as oppose to how to write for children which was the first online course I completed.  It took months and eventually I reached the end of it, got the certificate and bought the book, really enjoyed the learning and the knowledge gained from it.  The big question is, is do I start this second course just yet?

Here is my predicament:

If I did, it means I’d be starting up yet another project and to be quite frank my original project seems to have come to a halt.  Or do I try and force myself to complete it, have as many projects as possible on the go and see which, if any, can motivate me to continue writing.

The main project is becoming quite hard and that’s mainly because I’m having to think of ways around the various obstacles I’m coming up against.  I’m still mapping it all out but I’m also trying to concentrate on writing the ending so I know how to get to it.

Hmmm, not sure what to do. I don’t want to stop writing but I think if I get this course going it might give me that inspiration – then again it might not. Maybe I just need to give myself some more time instead of thinking things should be done by X time?

Over the past couple of days I have been checking out other bloggers and I have often dropped comments on their articles.  One piece of advice I gave someone was to just write something, even if it’s small – but I just can’t seem to take my own advice!!!!

So annoying, I’m trying, really trying but am thinking more about the crisps I’m eating than the story I should be writing.

What to do, what to do?

Finger In Another Pie Already

I feel like I should mention that I’m also wanting to write another book, this time a collection of them.  It’ll be aimed at 5 year olds, short books, mostly with a moral and there will be nearly 30 of them in total.  They are aimed at speaking them out loud with lots of fun tongue twists and Dr Seuss-esque alliteration.

I started writing one of them a couple of weeks ago and then, as per usual, lost interest.  I kind of want to see if I can also make this project start (haha) and have a satisfying end too.
