No, I’m not talking about menage this time. I’m talking about writing. I’ve got two stories live in my head at the moment and it’s kind of weird.
I just finished the rough draft of Dark Elves VI: Awakening as well as the first round of edits on Heaven Sent: Revelations, so, naturally, I’m ready to start the next project. I don’t stop, you know. I may not be writing as fast sometimes or I may be stuck and not writing at all, but the stories never really halt in my head.
Well, I was all set to start this story that is so far “the boss” story because I don’t have a title for it yet. I started working on this one over a year ago when the first scene jumped out at me and I had to write it. I managed to write 20,000 words on it before I fizzled out. I think it was Unicorn that needed to be written, so I put this boss story aside. But now it fits perfectly with a submission call that Loose Id sent out so I’m trying to get that one done and in by the deadline. It’s the story I planned to do.
So, imagine my chagrin when another story up and accosts me. I’m going to say it isn’t my fault. Look at this picture by Heise.

Is that not one of the most beautiful things you’ve ever seen? I’d seen it before because I purchased her artbook, but I was looking again the other day and a story for these guys just leaped out at me. I’d written close to 5K words before I’d really realized it.
So now I’ve got 2 stories going and I don’t know who’ll win out. Not sure I can get both of them done before I need to start working on the sequel to About Something, which I’ve agreed to do.
*sigh* so many stories!
