It’s only when I’m knee deep in a story I’m writing that a handful of ideas show up and want me to make space in my writing life for them. Any other time, I’m dying of dehydration; begging for a sip of any story idea.
I guess that’s just how it goes, but recently I’ve been toying with the idea of Double Dipping!
I.E – Writing two stories at one time.
Crazy, I know.
But not impossible, right?
I know for fact, I’m able to separate multiple stories at once. It took awhile, but I went from reading one book at a time to bouncing back and forth, reading up to four books during the same week. To me, that makes me feel confident in being able to invest myself into 2 different pieces of writing.
As of right now, today, it’s just a thought. With unpacking, cleaning and settling down after my families big move; I’ve barely had time to even write Chapter 5 of The 6 Month Lease but I’m thinking once life gets a little less messy, it’s a challenge I’d like to accept.
Has anyone tried?
