My favorite is number two. Knowing that there is nothing wrong with having two different novels from two different genres going at the same time actually helps especially when you feel bogged down in one and feel stuck you can go to another and this gives you a chance to come back and look at the issue of the previous novel with a fresh view and see something you missed or if you need to do research then at least you are still writing and not feel guilty because you feel like you wasted a lot of time that could have been spent writing. Thanks for this great advice.
As I said before, straight to the point novels with little description and smaller words are not bad novels. They can be very good novels. But wanting every novel to be written like that smacks of something the fast food generation wants, something called instant gratification. They want results now, they want their food now. Sometimes I wonder if there is a correlation to the fast food generation to people wanting their novels always simple and straight to the point. To say that novels should only be written one way, which this article seems to be saying, is a disservice to literature and it’s many diverse writers. I ask you all to think it over.
