An Experienced Writer, But Never Published...

So I guess you could say I'm a hobby writer.  I had the opportunity to have one of my works put to a podcast this year, but I dropped the ball when my plot bogged down.

I still haven't finished it.

Anyway, Having successfully completed NaNoWriMo in '09, I struck out with designing more plots and such.  so far it has been successful, in that i have four stories online in various levels of completion.  Of course, they are in rough draft, but they all have to start somewhere, right?

Anyway, i thought I'd jump into a group and see if anyone had some ideas as far as keeping me focused.  It's not the creativity or even the dreaded "Writer's Block" that kills me.

I get bored of a plot if it drags on to long.  If I force it then it drones on, or it runs to the climax too quickly, then I'm left with finding a back story to fill the rest of the word count.

BTW, I have been writing on one of my stories since I was eight...  Yeah, I'd say 30 years is probably procrastination....  [sigh]
