OK, that title may be a little confusing but it's the only way I could "tweet" what I was trying to say in a limited amount of words. But I was just wondering if anyone work on more than one story at once; namely that "big one" and a bunch of smaller ones whenever the mood or idea strikes them. Knowing I'm not a good writer I try to start a bunch of small stories but it always tends to overlap the big one in some way. Either I use plots or ideas from the big one or the ideas in the small one makes me want to include them in the big one. In the end, it seems I get little done in the way of actually writing besides a poem here and there. Anyone else have this problem?
