Writer Talk: Multiple Projects

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:

  1. 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.
  2. I’ll have a lot more material when I finish than if I forced myself to work on one story at a time.
  3. 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!

  • I absolutely work on mutliple projects at once. Usually I work on a longer novel based idea while also juggling some short story projects. The short stories are my fall back when I need a boost of creativity to my main project or even just a mental break. It does wonders for me. Thanks for posting this! Glad I’m not the only one 🙂 Happy writing!
