I'm always working on multiple projects at the same time (I'm slow at revising). I don't force myself to write unless I'm in the mood because if you're bored, then your readers will be able to tell.

Sometimes I have to stop writing completely for a week or two and go to my other hobbies of drawing, listening to music (playing the guitar), and watching TV. Those activities can bring inspiration to a certain story idea that may get me motivated to start a new project or go back to my old project.(less)

I love getting my creativity down on paper, and I love getting away with observing people. Some people look creepy staring, but I look cool LOL. I could get lost in my mind all day, and there's no better feeling.(less)
