The big question first: "Do you know why you feel like you're wasting your time?"

Absolutely, I'm so bleeding disorganized that I couldn't find a needle in a stack of needles as far as any creative project is concerned. I re-write without knowing it, later to find a similar (if not verbatim) passage on my hard drive. It sometimes feels as though I've written the same story many times (but never bothered to finish it)

Now, the important question: "Do you still WANT to work on the story?"

I am reasonably certain that I do, any time I have nothing to distract me (I am VERY easily distracted) my thoughts return to this story of a boy who tries to do some good.

I do believe your last sentiment struck the loudest chord. "... if you aren't constantly moving closer to that finish line, then that's where things get problematic"

You deserve a prize.
