I consider myself still a novice, so I'm not here to offer advice, just my experience: Since I started writing a few years ago I found that ideas come to me as they never did back when I only thought about writing but never actually did any, and I do collect these ideas and sometimes add to them ... but I don't concentrate on them (despite having a few I am looking forward to exploring). I know myself well enough that I know I am single-tracked (a polite way of saying obsessive), which makes mixing writing and paid-work really hard, so I concentrate on just the story I am currently trying to complete. Unexpectedly this has now turned into writing two books at once (one is a background thing that may or may not see the light of day). Both are really part of the one story, so I'm still in the same world, but even so I find I have to concentrate on just one (usually for weeks or months at a time) or nothing gets done on either. (I recognise this obsessive nature is a fault in my own make-up, but one that I am not currently planning on trying to "fix".)
