Do you ever get those thoughts? You sit down to write one story, you tell yourself you’re going to focus on this idea and this idea only, and ten billion other ideas come into your head, each one more wild and exciting than the last.
Of course if you give up on your original idea and start working on one of those new ideas, the same thing’ll happen again. And you like your original idea. It’s just your brain doesn’t like being productive on the thing that could work.
It’s the instant gratification monkey. I hate that monkey.
