Letting go of stories that are too hard to write

Recently, I’ve decided that two brother-sister story ideas that I really liked would be just too hard to write. I consider this a part of my maturation as a writer.

The first story was going to be “The Twelve Days of Christmas” and it was going to be a series of steadily escalating sexual incidents over the twelve days of the story. It was going to start fairly innocent – the brother accidentally catches the sister facing away from him while wearing just panties – and ends with them fucking on day 12. I’ve already written through the first incident. I’ve got lots of interesting scenes in my head for the story. But each incident what have to be set up and that would be a huge amount of work. Eventually, I decided it would be too much work.

The other story was going to be “Flash and Vape”. It was going to be about a minor rock band on their first tour. The band was three eighteen-year-old women and the twenty-year-old brother of the lead singer. The brother ends up fucking regularly all three women. A pretty awesome fantasy. However, I don’t know anything about what it would be like to be a minor rock band on tour. And I would have to cover months and months of story. Eventually, I decided it would be too much of a story for me to ever write.

Lastly, I’ve gotten a comment and a PM recently asking me to continue on “Heather and Michael”. The initial negative comments on Ch 03 killed my enthusiasm for writing any more chapters. I’ve done a re-write of Chapters 1 & 2 with the idea of I’d publish it when I finish writing what was going to be Chapters 3-6. But Ch 4, 5 and 6 are really tough to write. In Ch 4, Maddie seduces Michael. I’ve just not been able to come up with a scene where that happens that I’m comfortable with. I’ll keep that story in the back of my mind, but there’s no point in working on that story until I can resolve that.
