Safe to say that I have too many book ideas. The eleven ideas above? These are only the ideas I saw fit to write down as I had them. There are many more that pop into my head, but I let them fade away. As of right now, I have plans to do something with the first half of these short ideas. In some cases, I already have drafts written, but in most, all I have is plans. When am I going to have time for all of this?
At some point, I have to realize my limitations. If I were to make all of these into short stories, and if I were to devote my time to it by quitting my day job, I might could get all of these ideas out of the way. But even then, it wouldn’t do them justice.
It’s a shame, but I have to focus only on the ones that most intrigue me. It hurts to let the stories drop for now, stories that will perhaps never be seen by a reader. It simply has to be done.
So, Writers: What stories have you let slip by? What ideas have you had that you will likely never flesh out? And readers, of the above story ideas, which would you like me to flesh out a bit on this blog?
Comment section is below. You know what to do.
See you around!
One thought on “Stories Untold”
The Nobel rebellion one sounds interesting. So far, I haven’t had any slip away. Only filed away for the next book. It might be years before I write them out, but they’re waiting for me.
