How many stories at once?

So, I’ve been wondering how many stories I should work on at one time – should I attempt to complete the one I’ve started, or is it okay to stop in the middle and work on another if it starts being insistent in my head. And yes, I do have that problem currently. I’ve been working on my first novel, but I have an idea for a novella (I don’t think I have enough for it to be a novel, but I could surprise myself) that really pestering me to be written.

So, after joining the GoodReads group and following some of my favorite authors, I’ve discovered that they don’t stick to a single story – they have lots of stories in the works at any given time – and sometimes they have to give up temporarily on one because the muse isn’t speaking about that story any longer, but this other story is just dying to come out.

So, that’s what I’m going to do.
