I'm one of those guys who can not stand half-finished projects. But that's where I am right now - at least a half dozen half-finished projects that are in various stages of disarray. Some are in the outline stage, some have wrapped a first draft, others are 99% there.
So what I'm doing is going through and focusing solely on each one until they are wrapped. So as of this exact moment, I'm editing the novel I'm working on called Devil's Candy. Devil's Candy is about a screenwriter in Hollywood who gets framed for the murder of a famous producer.
What we could all use is a little more focus, I bet. It's a simple trick, but setting the alarm on my phone for one hour, then diving in with little distraction, has been the ticket so far. I'll keep you posted on my progress.
