Re: How Many Projects Do You Keep Going At Once
Trust me Mathias, I believe most of us are juggling many stories at one time.
I have blurps of stories I want to focus on from 1987. You may not have been born then. I belong to a writer's ink group and we meet on the 1st and 3rd Friday of each month. We have a suggested writing topic from one week to the next. Unbelievable as it may seem, I always have a current story to tell. I'm not sure how it happens. This past week we had to write something on Travel - I just returned from a trip to Colorado the week before and I had plenty of stories to write, plus pictures.
One time our topic was Stream of Consciousness - I had been thinking about the world as it is, was I happy, why did people look so angry, why were people behaving badly, and on and on. Great material for that topic.
So, I guess what I'm trying to say, just when I try to sit and continue a story I already have going on, another story needs to be written. It's safe to say, I have at least 33 (I stopped counting), stories in the making. Which one I'll work on tomorrow - who knows? I see I want to write a story for "100 words or fewer" contest. This will take some time. So, I just keep writing whenever I can.
Hopefully you will do the same - Just keep writing - good luck.
