I'm still working on the outline for my novel but I've also been trying to work on a short story, trying being the operative word. I got about a third of the way through my story before I realized it was too close to the plot of another story I've already published. There's something to be said for working in your comfort zone, but there's also something to be said for not duplicating your efforts. I've never liked it when I bought a second book of an author's and found it to be almost a xerox of the last book I read by them. I'm going to keep the setting and the characters, but going to think a little more about changing the plot. Hopefully, I won't be stuck too much longer and will be back to being productive.
