All right. I give. Apparently I can only write one story at a time. I've a great idea I want to work on, but am partway through DIAMOND HEAT and those characters keep butting into my thoughts when I'm trying to get down ideas for the so-far-nameless story. ERRRGGG!!!
Still, any experience where one learns something is a good one. So now I know. One story at a time.
I wrote only two pages tonight, but have more fully fleshed out the characters of Casey and Colleen. Hmmmm.... a baseball pitcher named Casey? Better go find my copy of "Casey at the Bat!"
