How Do I Juggle Story Ideas?

Q: I have a hard time staying with my stories. Every time I start one, I think of another story plot and I never get back to the other one. What should I do? —Rachel T.

A: Buy some index cards, and keep them next to you while you work on story No. 1. As ideas that don’t relate to story No. 1 pop into your mind, write them on the cards, put them in a shoebox and hide that shoebox somewhere it can’t be reached without a stepstool. Aside from putting new cards in it, don’t open it until story No. 1 is finished.
