Every gifted writer will tell you that she/he has put many manuscripts on the back burner while working on other projects, only to return to some of them with re-newed energy and focus. Hang in there, kiddo. Am glad you’re going to start another project. You're too good of a writer to stop now.
BTW - found this on the web [see below] and thought you’d be interested in a gentle reminder:
* Andrea Bocell - he'd loved music and singing his whole life... but didn't really see it as a career possibility. Got a law degree and was moonlighting in a piano bar for fun and extra cash. He didn't catch a break as a singer until 1992, at age 34
* Julia Child - working for U.S. government as a spy. She didn't enter cooking school until age 36.
* Col [Harland] Sanders switched from one career to another: Steamboat pilot, insurance salesman, farmer, and railroad fireman. He didn't start cooking chicken until he was 40 and didn't start franchising until age 65.
* Rodney Dangerfield - started doing stand-up at age 19... then gave up on it in his mid-20s. He started working as an acrobatic diver and then as an aluminum siding salesman. He didn't start getting back into comedy until he was 40.
* Harrison Ford – at 30 starred in "American Graffiti.” Huge hit but paid next to nothing! So, he decided he was never going to make it as an actor, and quit the business to get back into the more financially dependable world of construction. Four years later, he met up with George Lucas again and, the… rest is history.
