I start a lot of stories (see Works in Progress). And then I get organized and focus on one long enough to finish it. And then, I think, “Gee, I want to get back to <insert random WIP here>.” And in the meantime, I start two more stories.
Lately, I had the idea for a new story, but I didn’t start it! (I’m patting myself on the back, here.) I might still attempt it. It would be short–maybe 10k. But that’s 10k words of writing time I could be putting towards one of my other already started stories.
After I finish the current chapter in Lorne that I’m working on, I’m going to revisit a 66 Faces story I started very tentatively called The Menage. That’s definitely not what it will be published as, but it’s what it is now. I haven’t worked on The Menage in a very long time. Months. I closed the scrivener project long ago. But recently, it became clear I really need to finish it. So today, I opened the manuscript again. And read what I have. And fell in love with the story all over again.
I love when that happens. It’s fun to rediscover this idea that at some point in the past I believed in enough to put fingers to keyboard and bring a couple characters to life.
