So I'm curious about how other people handle this kind of simultaneous projects, and if anyone else works on two or more stories at the same time?
Edit: after going through the comments, I noted that there are two kinds of people :
Those that have one main project (and maybe a side one that they don't update as often)
And people 4 to 6 different projects, most in very different genres and even types of media (I.e. screenplays and comics)
I'm mostly focusing on Summoner right now, but I have so many partial stories I also want to write. I'd probably be writing something else new by now if it hadn't taken off the way it has. But now I'm really into it and the number of readers is only making it more exciting to work on.
I don't enjoy working on multiple things at a time if I can help it. If I am, it's writing and editing another. I don't write multiple stories at a time unless there is a difference in length. I write a novella or a novel at the same time. Or a novel and a short story. I don't write two novels at the same time. It doesn't work out. I like finishing my work.
I'm re-drafting "The many wonderful adventures of Daveth", (Name subject to change)
I'm drafting up "Glory the Morningtide" into something that actually seems like it was written by someone that isn't an idiot,
AND I'm working on putting together a collection of short stories.
I have notes written for a "It's magic but it's actually sci-fi" story
And I have two drafts for for a couple of isekai stories.

I also have a few other ideas for some more series I'd like to do.
I never write on projects at the same time. What I do is I write a volume/arch for one series, then I jump to a volume/arch for another, and I rotate them. This way everything stays fresh and interesting, otherwise I would get bored and give up. I find that when I've been away from a series for a month or so, my interest comes back, especially when I'm tired of writing on the others. It's a great way to stay productive. But I also don't rewrite because life is too short for that nonsense, and I mostly don't outline.
But they mostly don't count because I write articles and modules all the time, use them, then archive them.

I am also preparing two campaigns for dnd, and helping a friend with his own.
And then I also have college exams to study for, as they are coming in mid to late January.
