Do you have some sort of deadline for writing? You don't have to write one story straight from beginning to end. Just work on what comes to you then get back to your main project.


There is no deadline.

There is no deadline.


Then why is it a bad thing to be writing 5 stories when your goal is 59? So long as the work and planning builds into something and/or helps you develop your writing skill, that sounds like solid progress to me.

Yeah, I gave up writing five stories and 59. I've written a new story and already posted the chapters on here.

Doh! That's what I get for replying to an old thread.

You are not the only person with such issue))) It took me a lot of time to concentrate on only one thing, one idea and develop it. Be structural in everything that you do starting from cleaning your house to writing. I used to ask for writing help a tutor from https://answershark.com/. And recommend everybody who needs to complete the writing assignment fast.

I had to overcome a similar problem some time ago in my book writing, so perhaps I can offer some help.
If any of you chaps have read my notes here in creative corner, then you probably know that I'm working on a fictional universe. While I do my best to remain focused on the first book, I just keep getting ideas for the others instead of the one I'm "supposed" to be working on.
The solution? Write whatever comes to your mind.
This is how it goes. In the thumb drive I save my books in, there are two files in the file "Del Mar universe"- one for the book I'm working on, and another titled "future scenes".
When I get inspired, usually after going for a walk or listening to music (much of which gets written down as "character x's theme"), I have learned to just write what came to me whether it's for the book I'm working on or for one coming far in the future.
Just remember; don't torment yourself to the point writing is no longer enjoyable for you, balance the amount of detail in your writing (not too little, not too much), don't be afraid to make the story deeper than most people will notice, and never throw fig newtons at signs on the side of the road on the 26th of May after insulting a dairy cow on the left side of the road.
Hope this helps chap,
Daws~
