I'm in the unusual position of having several projects half-started on my laptop. I'm not good at multi-tasking. I might have lots of half-formed ideas written in note form but not usually actual stories part written. I wrote a short story for a friends' anthology but it didn't work for them. I wrote another and that didn't work either so I gave up on the anthology but not the stories.
I suspect that part of the issue was that they were more long stories condensed than proper short stories. So I decided to expand them. Explain the characters motivations etc etc
The one I started with I'd only intended to convert 5,000 words into maybe 15,000 but I'm already at that and haven't even had my hero and heroine meet yet. Nor had I intended to write a werewolf story but seems my fingers had other ideas. I nicked an idea from one of my earlier books, Falling For You, and changed it a bit and now I'm racing away.
But I'm also pulled to the other story - about Faeries and I also started a contemporary MF one based on me and husband getting stranded at Philadelphia airport one snowy January. I can't write them all at the same time. But I want to. Plus I have a suspense story I need to tidy and get out there.
Let alone all the household stuff. Cleaning, dishwasher, ironing etc What I really need is another few of me so I can do everything at the same time.
I put the suggestion to husband.
His answer - One of you is quite enough.
And looking at me = I think he's right.
