Managing the trunk
After seven years of working on my writing, I have a good sized trunk, meaning collection of unpublished works, that is always making the rounds. On days when I don't find enough time to sit and write my 1000 words, one alternate activity I can do is to revise a trunk story and get it back into the market. Right now my entire trunk is out, which is ideal. This doesn't mean every story I ever wrote and didn't sell is making the rounds. There are a ton that were just too poor quality and had to be retired, but everything I still care to have my name on is out. And I'm a couple thousand words and a couple of scenes into my sf short story, a project to exercise my sf muscles again.
