Too Many Stories

Thanks to NaNo, I’ve run into a bit of a problem: I have three in-progress novels, and I don’t know which one to work on. I make sure to write some everyday, but thanks to school, it’s a slow process. Now, it’s an even slower process because I keep going back and forth between which one I want to write. Due to the different characters and settings, I decided to split Antanama in half, meaning I still have a lot of work to do for both sets of characters. But I also have my NaNo script, which is so completely different from its first draft that I am essentially writing a second first draft.

The rate I’m going, all my books will be finished within the same week three years from now because I can’t figure out which I want to write.

Do any of you have this problem? How do you get something done in a timely manner? Should I just pick one and ignore the other? Keep splitting my time? If any of you have any advice or would like to share your own experience, I’d be very thankful for it. And to those of you with my same problem, good luck.

  1. I have this problem too. What I do is when I feel the need to write on one WIP I just focus on that one till I have a craving to work on the next. I don’t know whether this is the most time efficient way to go about the problem but it seems to work for me.
    Good luck!

Give me your thoughts.
