How many ideas do you have for novels?: Even if you never get to write them all

How many ideas do you have as an author? At this point, I have just way too many. There is no way I can write them all out before I am long gone. So, why do I keep adding thoughts and ideas to my bulging notebooks?

It’s what we do as writers. It might be the one that excites us in ways the other ideas have not.

Once I started writing, I had one idea. I was okay with that at the time since I was writing. I know a local writer who is working on her first book. When asked what other ideas were percolating, she stated this was her only idea. She was okay with that to write one book. Yes, the room went silent.

Another local author stated the same thing, but being around the group and other writers, she soon started to compile ideas and since have written another book.

It is contagious once you write an article, short story, novella to a full-length book. For us, once the writing bug has hit, it does not go away, if ever, regardless of how many ideas for books we will never get to write.
