Multiple Story-Telling Disorder
Ok, not really a disorder, but it does dis-order my life when I have several stories on the go. I have Portia 4 pulling me onto a train where she and her spy are escaping a crime scene, I have Pickles 3 (also known as ValHamster) trapped in an underground gulag with militant guinea pigs, and I have a short story about Sherlock and Watson that follows up on the original ACD Blue Carbuncle mystery.
If you visualize three chess games being played at the same time, I’m moving each forward a little bit every day. When I’m stymied by one I move to the next one.
What do you guys do when you have several stories on the go?
