How can I actually finish a story I start writing?

I’m an aspiring writer, but only one problem: I get halfway through writing one, and I get bored and quit! Does anyone have the same problem and/or ideas to help me write?

Answer #1

Before writing your story, write what you want to happen for each section or chapter. Use your outlines as a guide - they are not commandments; you can mix it up as much as you want but at least this way you should be able to write something down.

If you have problems starting a story as long as you have your outlines you can try writing the parts you like first, (for example an action section as opposed to a narration).

When you do your editing you can adjust parts accordingly.

Hope this helps.
