I want to not only write but publish a novel. I've written well into 3 novel ideas. I have over 100 pages written for 2 of them. I can't decide which one I want to really delve into and give my full attention. So for the moment, I write both. The only issue with that is I feel I'm not fully committed to either and so neither are beibg written with my full capabilities.

And the two novels are so different from each other. Of the 2 I'm seriously considering the one I've written most for is about a college student female who is surrounded by problems and falsehoods and a few mild mood disorders. The other that I'm writing is about a big spaceship housing a society of human like creatures who follow not one god but a family of gods. They both are fascinating subjects to me and in a perfect world I'd publish both. But should I slow down and focus on one at a time?

My goodness. I keep coming across things you've written and it's like you're my secret, long lost twin! I'm EXACTLY the same way and I am constantly coming up with new ideas but I never know which idea to give the attention to! :-)

Someday somebody should just sit down and write a novel, "My life is a blockbuster." and go from there. Then just keep filling the pages up with all the wild and crazy stuff that floats around in your head all day everyday.

Pretty soon, you'll come up with one heck of a story and you'll think to yourself,"Who wrote this?" You dummy! You just have to find your real voice!

I would advise you finish the story that is most complete. just my opinion.

If it were me I'd just write about whatever I was most passionate and energetic about, and if that changes focus on something else until I have the creative flow and energy to write more. I don't think creative genius can be rushed or hurried, just do whatever feels good to you :)

very interesting subjects by the way :) I have been thinking for a while to take up writing as well. Hope you do well!
