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:
- 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.
