The Temptation to Cheat

No not on word count on NaNo, but on my book for an idea that finally formed in my head. I had an idea a while ago that got stuck in the idea file for later. It's a really neat idea but it wasn't fully formed and my fallen angel kept whispering in my ear. But I've been breaking from the fallen angel for a month now and my hero of the other story just started to whisper. He gave me the conflict between him and the heroine. Why now? Well, I was watching "Ghost Whisperer," which may have jumped the shark, but I'm still watching. Anyway, something snapped into place. The final piece to their puzzle. So now I have this desire to poke around and see what else it will give me, but I need to finish the NaNo book which has been flying along. Then I want to revise Fallen and the NaNo book so I can submit again. Then I need to go back to Forsaken which has been waiting on the sidelines very nicely, just waiting. But this idea is fresh and I haven't seen a lot about it. Humpf. I know what the right thing to do is. I just need to write very fast. :)

Can you write two projects at the same time? Maybe spend a little time fleshing out the new idea so it's something more than just the idea.

Glad to hear your NaNo book is still flying. Good luck!
