I have over a hundred story ideas, but they're all novels. It seems like my brain just loves really thick plots. I would write any of these novels if I could, but I always run out of steam, and that's why I think writing a short story would be best. The problem is, however, that every time I think of a short story idea it turns into a novel; and then I have no more material that I can naturally work with. Are there any hints on focusing myself so I don't complicate my ideas so much? It seems I just love really thick plot-lines, and this tendency of mine is inhibiting me from getting anything done, because I feel I lack the experience to write anything very long just yet.
