OK, so yesterday I thought of another 2nd-POV story idea, and now I’m already 20% done drafting it. It even has a title. I came up with the title first, actually.
That’s exciting. Also a little stressful, but only bc I’ve promised my Patreon supporters I would finish a different story by the end of June & I am crap at managing parallel projects.
I do things in series, one story at a time. Learned that the hard way, by stubbornly attempting to do multiple projects at once. Sharp Edge should’ve come out a year, maybe two, after Rough Passages. Not four.
I tried to do another story at the same time.
The lesson stuck. Eventually. When I have momentum, I need to follow it.
But I do have a deadline. Self-imposed, but real nonetheless.
So the solution is clear. Stick with this story, but keep writing fast.
No idea what I’ll do with half of these short stories I’m finishing but I’m pleased they are coming into existence. This’ll make the third this year alone.
Very exciting. Just wanted to share that.
