    Do you sit and write one essay at a time, or do you have multiple writings going on at the same...

    time?  Is different with larger writings as in books...than it is with say...Stoffel's Guide's?

    I have more than one going on at the same time because I seem to need that in order to produce anything. It also depends on what mood I am in - I will work on different things accordingly smile

    While I do have many writing projects going on at the same time (working on three books and some poetry, in addition to the Guides), I usually set a day apart to focus on Stoffel's Guide for the week. I find doing multiple projects of different types helpful in that it keeps me from getting too burned out with one thing. The tricky part is not to get your projects mixed up. Working on some nonfiction, one scotch too many, working on a wacky fantasy story ... wait, there is no flying teacup involved in Cochlear Implant surgery.... Now, they connect the implant to the auditory nerve, and then Gaudylooks and the Three Bears come in to install the breathing tube in the ear.... If you're not careful, you could end up writing the healthcare bill.

    While I am rather new to the Hub scene, my attitude towards work has always been start one project and finish it before doing another. When growing up I watched my Dad always have endless projects and nothing ever seemed to get done. So my work ethic, has always been the opposite. Now that I am spending more time writing, I find myself doing the same thing by putting my efforts into one Hub at a time.

    I start with one story and then more stories branch off from the first. -like a branches from a tree-
