Writing Projects

I believe I've been told a couple times that, in my writing, I bite off more than I can chew which means I have too many different stories going on at once. So, let me count to see if this is true. I'm going to classify my stories under three categories: Actively Working On (been written in in the last two weeks or so), Dormant (hasn't been worked on in over a month, and I'm completely dead on ideas, how to continue the plot, etc.), and Finished (all books I've finished writing).

Actively Working On
Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder
Diary of a Homeschooler-Cassie
New Hope (a Warriors fanfiction)
Poisoned
Secrets of the Forum
The List
What If

Dormant
A Stranger
Blissful Yellow
Diary of a Homeschooler-Jocelyn
MDBC: Princesses-in-Training
Waves of Grain

Finished
Blue Despair
Bright Curiosity
Choix
Embrouille
Envy Green
Frustrated Gray (finished writing, but I need to finish typing it up)
La Derniere Bataille
Love Red
Masked
MDBC: Second Time's a Charm
Night Black & Snow White
Sixteen (although this is continuely a work-in-progress because I occasionally think of a new chapter to add)

Yup, I think that's all of them. So, what do you think? Too many active projects? Too many dormant projects? There's a couple stories I think I should just kill because the only "writing" I've done in the last few months is editing here and there. Those stories are under the dormant category. Other dormant ones just don't have my focus at the moment (MDBC and Blissful Yellow). I sort of started DoaH: Jocelyn, but I'm waiting to continue it until I finish with Cassie. How many writing projects do y'all have going at the moment?

  2. Wow, you've got a lot of novels going on. I'm glad to here you finished your Camp NaNoWriMo novel. Did you hit 50,000 words?
    Also, will you ever be posting any of your MDBC fanfictions? I'd LOVE to read them!!!

    1. Well, technically, it's not finished; I only finished book one of the whole book. And, no, I didn't.
      Probably not.

  3. Emma--I've been wanting to read some of your FanFictions and I have two questions: What is your FF username? Have you made a MDBC FF? Thanks!

    1. I don't go on a fanfiction website. ;) Under Dormant and Finished, there are two MDBC fanfics. (It's a series. ;)) I've been writing book two for over a year. I really should work on it and finish it...
