Is it okay to let a work in progress wither a little? Not die, just put to the side, so that time and energy can be focused on a more pressing item?
I'm behind on a schedule I set for myself for a novel. I fell behind when real life got very tumultuous. I've been trying to catch up. However, in doing so, I haven't finished the edits for my non-fiction, which I expected to have done a while ago. Do I just let the novel lie for a while as I finish my non-fiction and work to catch up later? I think that's what I'll do. What would you do?
Thanks for listening.
