Divided

So, I've spent the last several years working on a children's book series. I've become attached to the characters, watched them grow and mature. They are constantly in my thoughts. While the first draft of the third book is going through critiques, I've begun working on a new children's story.

Here's my problem...I can't stop thinking about Shayia and the gang. It's hindering me from getting to know the new characters in my current WIP!

What do I do to keep my mind focused?

What do you do when you work on more than one project? How do you divide your attention so that neither project suffers? If you have any suggestions for me, please share.

As I continue to work through this issue, I'll share with you how I'm doing in case someone else has the same problem.

We must stick together!

I usually read over what I have previously written and listen to songs that apply to the book. (That last one may not work for children's books, though) I also look for pictures of the characters, come up with their backstories, etc...
