I've been keeping track of all my book ideas lately that I can add to and look back on. I decided a week or so ago that I really love one idea and started forming the outline and getting the book started. I've written about 20,000 words and love where it's going.
I'm nervous about multitasking different ideas, though. I don't want to screw up stories or mix them. So I've been doing my research and figuring out if multi-tasking can work or not. Here's what I've found out...
Organize the crap out of your stuff. Make sure you have separate folders, markers, hell- even drawers. You don't want to cross characters or scenes. Organize it in your brain too. Work on only one project a day or make sure you have a break in between.
Set goals. Make sure you know what you want to accomplish for each project. If one is short, set a word count limit. You could even set a daily, or weekly limit. Only write as much as you can handle. For each project make sure to meet a goal before moving on to the other one.
Remember, writing is fun. It's not a chore as a writer to construct a story. The editing- maybe, but the writing part is the best part. You tell a story the best you can and really invest yourself into it. If you're not feeling like writing a day, don't force it. Write a story that you genuinely like.

What Readers Have to Say...
"An absolutely heart wrenching read that shows us that at times no matter how much we hope, darkness will find its way to win. "
-Blogger's From Down Under for A Reliant Love
"So this book is the ultimate love story. I like how two ordinary people who is so different and still so alike in so many ways can overcome everything together."
-Angelica Berglund for For The Love of Hockey
"I never thought I would read a "zombie book", much less love one. The Last Legacy really surprised me. Even with the whole people-eating-people thing, it was a fantastic book"
-Melannie S for The Last Legacy
"I could not wait to start book two. If this book was as good as book one, then I knew I wouldn't be disappointed. It wasn't as good as book one...it was better. "
-Keely Retchloff for Finding Sam
"The powers, the love, the excitement, the drama kept me so enthralled. If you are looking for a GREAT series about true love and mythology, look no further... I wish I could rate 10 stars! Definitely recommend this whole series to all my book loving friends!"
-The Book Blog for A Curse Books Trilogy
"For the Love of Ash" by Taylor Lavati was a rare 5-star read for me. I honestly find many typical romances rather dull and predictable. This was not the case at all here; there was nothing average about the romance, overall storyline, and the long list of supporting characters."
-Summer's Book Blog for For The Love of Ash
"Wingless isn't what I would normally pick up and read, but thought I'd try it out and I am so glad I did. The characters and "worlds" she creates are done so well that you can actually picture them and feel like you are there right along with the characters."
