The Problem with Unfinished Stories
The problem with unfinished stories
I’ve got a problem with writing stories: I can’t seem to finish them.
I have loads of ideas and plots that could make up a good story. However, I have that one teeny weeny problem that seemingly have turned into an ‘illness’ already. I can’t seem to finish what I’ve started and it’s really disappointing.
Currently, I have made many drafts on Wattpad, but these remain unpublished and left in a corner to rot. I’ve got two stories still under construction, however, I can’t grasp that motivation that I need to continue these stories.
Is it maybe because of lack of confidence? Lack of support from the audience? Am I just thinking too much about what others think that I forget the real purpose why I wrote that story? Maybe, maybe not. Oftentimes I question myself if I’m really that good enough to someday, become a well-recognized author and inspiration to all budding writers out there.
But who am I to complain and get lazy when the going gets tough?
I was thinking of creating staggered blogs here on Persona Paper based on my working experience. Should I push through this project?
I need to have more confidence, more great and fun ideas to make my story well-oiled with suspense, thrill, romance and action. But how? I guess it’s up to me to find out. It’s such a cinch to see other people become an overnight success with such a great story written. I hope someday I get to be like that. I need to continue dreaming, stop being so negative and pessimistic. I need to welcome good vibes every day, every single waking moment of my life. I know I’m meant to do this. I just need the strength, support and love to help me go through this phase.
Tell me what you think. Thank you!
