Have you ever had too many ideas at once that you never knew which one to do first? The ideas just don’t want to seem to stop. I’m more busy now that I’m “retired” (for the moment) then when I was working. Now if only any of said ideas would make me money, then I could stay retired.

Do you just jot the ideas down and get to them or do them all at once? I tend to split my time between them, as I try to get them to come to be. Plus, being so far ahead helps me in that case. But out they spill.

Idea #1 – write a new novel that isn’t connected to any of the previous ones.

Idea #2 – create a new website that could make me rich. (fat chance, but you never know.) This one is slow going as I have to rely on others, as I can’t code a thing, but getting there.

Idea #3 – a new YouTube video series

Idea #4 -new song lyrics

There are plenty more ideas that flow. From the 50-100 or so kids books ideas I got jotted down to the 100 or more novel ideas I have saved. Also have a good 100 or so blog topics to rant on for the cat. This one I just wing it.

Now I’d sure never complain and I manage my time wisely, always have and always will, but just figured I’d ask the question. Plus it gets me a new blog post. Win/win.

How do you handle multiple ideas at once?

Enjoy life, forget the strife.

Well, sounds like you’re keeping a WIP (Works in Progress) list like my quilt list. Except keeping it private so others can’t rip off your ideas!

Hmmm… wise thinking! Maybe I should follow your lead!!!

(Oh, and yes, I get so many ideas in my head, I think it might explode if I don’t keep track of them somewhere!)
