One of my goals for this year is to finish the book I keep promising my husband. Quite frankly it’s been hanging around for a couple of years, and every couple of months he asks about it.
I’ve had a lot of excuses over the years not to finish it, not the least of which is that it’s pretty far out of my comfort zone. It’s a genre I haven’t written before and it’s a genre I don’t even read much of…but he does, which is why I started it in the first place.
So I’m working on it now (despite the conventional wisdom about developing a niche…blah blah blah) and I’ve got to say, I’m enjoying it.
I thought I’d feel like I was taking a giant step backward by unearthing this manuscript, but I find I’m looking forward to working on it every day.
Do you ever abandon projects and then return to finish them?
