There are three stories that I have started to write, all in various stages. I like them all but can’t stick with one to see it through. I decided to explore why and discovered that I write according to my moods.
When I feel playful I work on Isabel and Gaby. When I feel pensive I write on Ricky. When I feel confident I write on Marian, Sylvia, and Lila. All three stories beg to be told but I can’t focus on one. I wish there was a way to combine all three but they are so different from each other they need to tell their own tale.
I could write them into short stories, but the only one that may lend itself to that is Lila. That could be because I’ve already written a segment of it as a short story and know it can be done, or that I don’t know if I have enough interest in myself to see a novel through to the end. A NOVEL. The word itself promotes anxiety.
The following are snippets from two of them. What do you think?
Thanks to all for commenting. I deleted the stories for obvious reasons.
Good luck with your writings!
