I know I have ADHD. 5,000 thoughts a minute cram into my mind. I constantly multi-task. All of my children inherited it.
Not surprisingly, I'm torn which story to write next. It's not because I'm suffering from writer's block. It's because there are many stories I want to write.
Just today, I read an email from one publisher stating they need more shorter stories, to hurry and submit them. Also today, a different publisher emailed me that my series there is a go, to make sure I put the series name on future submissions.
Earlier this week, yet another one of my publishers emailed me my cover art request forms and said by the way...when you submit your next story you can submit the cover art request form at the same time.
I haven't submitted anything to yet a fourth publisher in awhile (because I've been so busy writing for other publishers).
I wish I had more hours to write. However, would that fix the problem? Probably not. Publishers always have projects. Stories live in my mind that want to be written.
There's even a non-fiction book roiling around in my mind I'd like to write.
Which one will win?
Usually the one burning brightest in my heart. The one that will practically write itself I'm so hot to write it.
I imagine most writers face this dilemma from time to time. If you're a writer, how do you choose which book to write next?
