Currently I have three documents open: Eastside Faerie, Warrior Tithe, and a new short story called Galactic Emporium of Delight. I’m working my way through, writing a chapter at a time on each. I have no prescheduled time dedicated to any of them. I do, however, have a time I sit down to write every week day, and I dedicate the time fully to whichever document I start.
While I don’t suggest working on three projects at once, I do like it for myself for three reasons:
- I am fully invested when I delve into any of the works in progress. I’m not daydreaming about something else I’d rather write because if I wanted to work on that project, I’d work on it.
- I’ll have a lot more material when I finish than if I forced myself to work on one story at a time.
- It doesn’t take me longer to finish three projects than one.
Do you work on one project at a time? Share your process in the comments section. I’d love to hear from you!
