To add to the good advice already given…

Many new writers have issues with finishing works. This can be for many reasons. The first step is to analyze why you stop writing on an idea that you once found exciting.

Are you unsure where to take the story?

Too many choices on where to go in the story?

Fearful you can't do the story justice?

Do you lose your excitement after a short time?

Do you reach a point where you think it's a steaming pile of cow patties?

Do you finish the opening and then feel overwhelmed by the rest?

Something else?

Each of the above (and any other answers) will typically require a different approach to get you over the roadblock. I think most of us have had several of the above in their writing lives.

NOTE: I am also "Dreamerscove." At least I think I am. With so many characters running around my head, I'm never quite sure. 'Tis the nature of being a writer.
