I find myself in a conundrum. I am curious how you handle it. As you know I am working on revision of a manuscript, “Gears”. I am also strongly tempted by the lure of a new novel/novella idea which has been lurking in the basement since the fall. In the meantime I have continued working on short stories to keep active and to work on craft. I am at a point where the new story idea is more appealing than fixing the current MS. What does one do like this? Remain monogamous to the current project and spurn new ideas? Choose to shelve the current MS in favor of the sexier new one? Shelve them both and write short stories while they fight over you on the lawn like teenagers?
What do YOU do to deal with so many stories and only one set of hands?
