On Writing...

So one of my goals this year was to write more. I had it in my head that that meant to finish what I was working on. Not that I wouldn't start anything new. Just don't start anything new until I had FINISHED WHAT I HAD ALREADY STARTED!

I have failed.

For a while now, I've had it in my head that I wanted to rewrite 'Cowboys and Angels,' which is the first novel I ever wrote. I love and hate the title at the same time. It sounds too much like a trashy romance novel to me; but I suck at titles and that's what I always called it. I started to do some edits on it. Then I got more into YA and decided I could rewrite it as YA. I've thrown around some ideas, written out some plot points, but that's as far as it went.

Then it started to snow and I wanted to write a pretty snow scene. Like a kissing in the rain scene. But a walking in the snow scene. So I wrote it as part of the rewrite. Then I started at the beginning. So far, it's only a page but how I want it to be more!

So I'm doing what I always do. Drop something completely because I got a good idea and want to run with it. This is why I have a hard time finishing things. This is why I get so frustrated with myself. Grr...
