May 27, 2012

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.
