wayback wednesday: how many ideas is too many?

So, a lot of new ideas for my novel have been flowing lately. Hopefully not too many. One of my very reasonable fears is that it will be one of these books packed with too many ideas and none of them executed well. In my city-walking meditations, I've been trying to train my mind to only think about nuances of currently planned scenes in the novel, which has actually worked better than I would have thought.

Perhaps I should find a way to punish my mind when it tries to invent new scenes. Then again, maybe I'm already doing that by staying up late every night playing computer games?
