I am two ahead of myself at the moment for blog posts. If I have a bad day or forget until the last moment, I have some safeties waiting in the wings.
But I want more. I'd love a dozen or more. That way, I have extra ones I can choose from. Given enough time, I maybe wouldn't even post some of them because they're redundant or move on.
Extra allows for extra thinking. More ideas are considered and written down. It also provides for reconsideration. Maybe the ideas aren't as strong as I thought.
And what if we applied this to our fiction. A dozen stories waiting in the wings to be considered. Maybe it's not complete drafts, but more of a treatment, something more than a few jot notes on the page.
How would your writing change, then? What would guide your decisions? And would you be happy?
