They're both good starts.  When I started (longer ago than I care to 
admit), I would have called the "scrap" a complete story, and written a 
quick ending to the "finished" Part 1 story.  I didn't write my stories 
to be complete until I started hanging around RACC.  But I have all 
those old concepts to draw upon.  I'm actually rewriting some of them 
and tacking onto on others; you can see some of that in the Powernaut 

You don't need us to tell you what to write or when.  But when you do 
write it, I bet we'll be happy to read it.  'Til then, I think we'll 
like you even better for giving us comments.  8{D>
