I've got a couple of short stories on the go at the moment but I can't talk about them. As soon as I tell you what I'm writing I'll lose impetus and stop.
I've lost track of the number of stories I've started. It's possible that telling someone about my work in progress isn't the problem. Maybe keeping my writing secret is like touching a rabbit's foot for luck, and what I really need to do is to get the end of the story clear in my head before I start so I don't get bogged down in the middle.
Even so, I'm not going to tell you what I'm working on till it's a lot further on than it is now. I need all the help I can get.
That's my theory today. I may change my mind next week!
Do you keep your writing secret?
