Reading some of my old writing, I've found that I like the characters, and I like most of the stories as well. The problem I'm having is after reading them a couple of times, I find there is no plot. It's just a bunch of things happening to a few characters I wanted to rewrite and finish a story I started years ago. I started an outline, so this time I would at least know where I wanted to story to go, instead of just writing what ever came to me at the time. All of my past stories seem to follow that same line of logic, a storyline with no or a very weak plot, and a fairy-tale type ending, (If I even got that far) I can not seem to get past the ending being to perfect, also in many of the stories I have written, the characters aren't doing anything that challenges them. At most they have a friend they can call to come help them.
