Finish what you're writing. Whatever you have to do to finish it, finish it.
I like this quote, a lot. I don't know about you but I have started and stopped several pieces without finishing them. Good stories that deserve to be finished. Stories that readers would enjoy. But somehow, I've managed to move on to something else...and sometimes left that for something else too. I don't know how many ideas I've got jotted down and stuck in a drawer for later. Seems like later never comes for them though.
So, what do I do? I think it's time to dig 'em out and start finishing them. For example, I have this really neat idea for a romance that involves an alligator wrestler and a chocolate saleswoman. And there's the far east fantasy that needs to be finished. It's a great story. I had the first five pages critiqued by a Japanese writer a while back and she really liked it. Said it had a Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon feel to it. Or maybe that YA ghost story.
What about you? Got anything you haven't finished that deserves to be finished and shared with the world?
Let's pledge together to finish one of our set aside pieces. I'll decide which one soon and let y'all know.
