Managing the list of unfinished stories

For months my brain felt distracted by the list of unfinished stories that are spread across the ‘My Documents’ folder of my laptop.  I couldn’t take it anymore.  This morning I better organized my writing into two folders:

  • Completed
  • Work-In-Progress (WIP)

I have fourteen unfinished stories in my writing portfolio.  That count excludes a half-dozen, one-sentence descriptions I maintain of future projects.

I can breathe a bit easier now.  I went into this exercise expecting to find about thirty unfinished stories.  I’m not entirely pleased with fourteen, but my next step this week will be to pare that back to a more manageable, single-digit number.

I don’t necessarily want to delete drafted narrative text, but it may come down to that in order to satisfy my mental well-being.  I suppose I will distill the text back down to a one-sentence description and keep that available in my idea file.
