Hey Jenna, would you say it's a bad thing to write two books at once? I have this other book that I've been slowly crafting for three years, but I never saw it as a potential novel for publication until a friend read some of it and said I should publish it. I'm also working on my planned booked and it's in the infancy stage. Just a few chapters deep. Would it be detrimental to my planned book if I spent some time editing and reworking my olderish book while finishing draft 1 of my planned book?
It depends on the person. Some people can write two books at once. Some can’t. I wouldn’t recommend it for a newbie but I also wouldn’t claim it’s a guaranteed disaster.
