        ("2" "second version with variable" entry (file+headline "~/share/all/org-mode/misc.org" "shorts")
         ,my-capture-template-next :empty-lines 1) ; and comma before my-capture-..

My guess is you need to evaluate my-capture-template-next before putting it in org-capture-templates and the backquote/comma above do that.
