*Sigh* why can't I just find a plot and stick with it? Honestly, I don't remember that last time I finished a book. *Sighs again.* That's why I write so many poems, so that I can stay busy.

*sigh* I don't think I HAVE finished a book. Not a serious one, anyway.

I do that too. I was writing a book called Azure but I gave up after the second chapter. It is SO IRRITATING!!! Maybe try and think of a story YOU REALLY want to write and plan the plot before you write it. Then when your writing it you can cut and change things but you still feel motivated to write it because you like it. Or you could just get all your ideas down in a notebook and choose the one you like best!!! :-P

*Laughs insanely with eye twitching* ARGH!!!!!! Apparently I can't finish ANYTHING except POSSIBLY poems… *Head desk* I was writing a random prologue. I had the basic idea. And now… *checks* 161 words into it, I don't really like the idea and think it's stupid and I'm wondering if I'm going to finish it… ARGH. >.< Yeah, I'm annoyed. :P It's like I have writer's block on everything but poems… *Head desk* *Head desk* *Head desk* *Head desk* *Head desk* *Head desk* *Head desks repeatedly*

*desk splinters* Ouch...

I cannot COUNT my random prologues. I have one I wrote a while ago that I'm copying onto Word now, because all I've been posting are poems...

With me I don't abandon things I just get about 3/4 of the way through before I decide that my style sucks, the character's lifeless, the story is absolutely boring and no one will even bother to get half way through the dang thing before setting it down and then go through a massive redo of the whole thing about four or five times. Obsidian is on chapter four and looks like it might stay...

Saaaame here Kiwara. I'll also leave the story alone and come back to read it and find it soooo sucky it's got to be redone...AGAIN.
