Writing two different novels at the same time?

I only write short stories. Often, I'm working on multiple stories at the same time. I find it helps me go back to other stories feeling refreshed. I feel better actually writing something than being stuck on something else. I don't consciously divide the time up.

I've just remembered when reading your posts; I used to struggle getting back into some voices, even getting tenses mixed up between stories. I don't seem to any more.

I've tried writing a novel and short story at the same time, and it was okay, but not really what I enjoy. I don't mind sketching out future novels while I'm writing one, but actually writing two novels at once wouldn't work for me—my worlds would keep interfering with each other. But I can write nonfiction at the same time as fiction.

However, if you can do, then very good. You'll go far.
