A little background info: I'm not a very good writer, not in the sense that I'm bad at the actual writing part, but I have never finished a short story. I am a novice so far, and only really started four or five stories. The thing is, every time I try and write a short story I got bored half way through and scrapped it to start a new and more exciting story idea. Well, It's happening again. I am about 3/4 the way done with my current story, and it is really just a drag to write. I feel like my state of boredom is just seeping through my mind and into my writing, which makes me even less motivated to finish it. Pretty much a vicious cycle. I have three stories I really feel passion for, but they would be all very long, and without finishing at least one short story I feel like I wouldn't be able to finish them. What do I do??
