Shiny Thing Syndrome for writers – being easily distracted by the next great story idea.

I was able to fight it off while finishing the current draft of Julia. But now that the draft is wrapped up and I’m ready to start something new while I let Julia breath, there is nothing shiny to be found. Nothing. I even dug out some old false starts to see if they would trigger an idea. Fizzle.

Either my brain is super dedicated to Julia or she has completely exhausted it.

I figure my best course of action is to read other people’s books and panic that I’ll never write again.
