I'm really trying to overcome my writing ADD. It's hard to get anything done when you're hopping aroudn from story to story. However, writing a first draft and revising a story are two completely different things, and I love writing first drafts. It's hard for me to stop writing new stories just because something is in revision. So I try to have two works-in-progress (WIP) going at any time: (1) a WIP I'm revising and (2) a WIP I'm writing the first draft of.
I don't really like sharing too many details of my worlds and stories online like this, so the descriptions might be a little vague. Also, some of the story ideas are still a little vague if they're first drafts. I'm more of a gardener (or pantser) than an architect (plotter)--which is ironic considering I'm an engineer--so I don't always know where my stories are going when I start them.
