Multitasker or a little crazy? You decide.

I'm working on a novella for my publisher right now. It's due March first so I really need to just get it done. It's a fun story and I'm enjoying writing it and everything, but I have this other story in the back of my head that keeps pushing to the front of my brain. The story wants to be told so badly and I really want to tell it! This one isn't for a specific publisher, no deadline or anything so I really just need to work on my original novella, but its hard when the characters from the second book are screaming in my ear to give them heir HEA.

So, whats a girl to do? Well, I decided to work on both! I already know where I want to go with both stories. Character sketches are done, blurbs are written, the whole nine yards. Now I have to actually write them! I decided since most of my writing is done during the baby's nap time or throughout the day that's when I would work on my novella. If and only if I hit my goal for the day, then I will write a little bit on the second book in the evening time. I did this for the first time yesterday and it worked well. I did my five pages on my novella and the in the evening I wrote three on my novel. Didn't do too much on either. Just enough to make some progress and feel like I'm accomplishing something. I felt pretty damn good about myself by the end of the day! I was like the multitasking queen yesterday. LOL. I'm hoping that will fuel me to accomplish as much if not more today!

Do you ever work on more than one project at once?
