@eskay8 Turn $Otherstory into nano project?
@aldersprig Ughhhh, no, it's super broken and I put it aside years ago for good reasons.
@eskay8 ooh, one of those. Can you spend a couple hundred words on it to convince it to go back to sleep?
@eskay8 Take 30 and write down as much about it as you can, then firmly tell it that it can have its turn later?
@eskay8 Go with the one that pulls you in. Chance are it'll do the same to the reader.
@eskay8 You're just going to have to find a way of joining the two stories to make it all count.
(The other suggestions you've had are far more sensible. I suggest you listen to those people instead of me.)
