I’m not sure how many writers do it, whether they work one piece beginning to end, or if they have a variety of pots simmering in the fire.
I was the one piece sort of guy. Now I appear to be the opposite.
I have the Dark Seas series, two books of which are complete and one book is about 1/3 done.
I have a political thriller that makes a statement about how the US is becoming much less free and stifles innovation with each step away from that freedom.
I have a short story in the works that is 3.5K words now but probably about 10K words finished. A fantasy piece.
I have an idea for a post-apocalyptic sci-fi that I’m considering writing on a bit today.
Earlier I had an idea about time travel that it probably wouldn’t be too hard to work into a story. Time travel/parallel universes/state of consciousness sort of thing is what first came to mind.
The thriller and post-apoc would be one off novels. The short story could conceivably turn into a series of short stories about the same heroes.I have no idea what the time travel thing is yet. What’s true is that there is no shortage of ideas demanding my attention, but there is both a shortage of time and endurance to get to them.
Plus soon I want to write a piece about my GTI. And I’m considering a non-fiction piece on agnosticism for the average dude.
So much variety. Too bad words don’t flow to paper as easily as they flow through neurons.
