Sometimes, it sucks to have written so many stories

I keep a small notebook in my coat pocket in case I need to jot down an idea for a story.  At some point, I transfer this over to my regular writing notebook.  Recently, while I was transferring stuff over, I saw an idea I had for a novel.  I had completely forgotten about this novel, but everything came back when I saw the note.  That depressed me because it’s a great idea, but because with my 8,000+ other projects, I’ll probably never get around to writing it.  Now, as an example of why I have 8,000+ projects, as I felt sorrow for this story that will never be written, I thought, That could work as a story.  I thought about it for maybe ten seconds before I realized I’d already written a story like that.

  1. oh SNAP! So the notebook is good for memory, but the really good ideas ARE thought of more than once. Guess it was a really good idea!
