I am wondering how many stories are too many to write at one time. I realize my focus should be on the one I am working on at the moment, but can that focus shift from day to day or week to week? The reason I am asking this is because I currently have 3 stories or story ideas that I am developing and writing. Part of me thinks I should devote all my time to the one story…pick one and write it. But the problem with that is mood. Each story comes from a different mood. It’s hard to write about positive emotion when my mood is dark, and vice versa. I like to think that the stories I write are emotional, based on love, based on the feelings and experiences of the people I write about. Sounds strange, but it honestly comes from the heart. I am an emotional guy…I just don’t show it often. So hopefully, if I write today, I can bring some emotion into the words I scribble. And hopefully, if I ever let anyone read my stuff, they will feel the emotion. But first, I need to write it. I need to feel it. It needs to move me.
