With your WIP. Definitely no romantic falling out over here, but I wish I could say the same about my love for my current writing projects. The fact of the matter is, sometimes, as writers, we start a project that for some reason or another we can't finish. So what are the signs that your Work In Progress really should be the Work in the Drawer? 1) There's no joy in it anymore. Every day feels like work and you find yourself making up excuses to avoid actually working on it.
