This year I am writing a novel.
As I write I still have two separate storylines warring for my thoughts. Since the beginning they have both been in my brain and I have looked at them both at length but they do not fit together at all. So, they remain at war; both ideas wanting to be told.
The Nameless Files are still flowing out onto the pages. This story is set in our world but magic and people who can weld magic are a part of our world. However, that second story that is whispering to me is set in a whole new world. It is a world that is born out of the depths of my imagination. I am drawn to the creation of a world but for now it will have to wait while The Nameless Files continues to grow and come to life.
Does this happen to you? Do you have more ideas in your imagination then you can commit to paper at one time? How do you manage those multiple ideas?
