when drowning in the flood of ideas

by Malin

I have had the problem of holding on to one idea and work it start to finish, I allways have multiple storylines in motion and it can get distracting sometimes. I have solved this by writting down all ideas, never discarding them and collecting them in note books, I have about 6 books with around 5 ideas per page. I have only two main things i work on and every now and then I pick up one of my other ideas and do a short story letting my main work rest and my mind reboot. I ocationally throw my ideas out there letting friends and family inspire me. I constantly update my work and this has helped me keep a focused and no good idea slips by me because i have priority projects.
