I'm trying to write a story.

I figured I have all this time anyway, so maybe I should study, read and game a bit less while I'm not out looking for work, and try writing instead, because hey, it might go somewhere. I haven't tried story-writing for years, and I know a bit more now, it could work.

Well, I've been at this all month, and it has not. I've got just under 5000 words "done" which is somewhere between half a chapter and the entire first chapter. Technically, I've written about 35k - not including the outline - but it's all rewrites as my ideas for how the details work out keep changing. Also, somewhere along the way I've lost the ending from my outline.

Worst part is it's not even original, it's a fan fiction. The ghost of my self-esteem is displeased with my inability to successfully finish even a single chapter to my own satisfaction.

Empathy.... so much empathy.

At least you've got some words down. I think the reason I've flagged a lot is that I tend to do my writing on the fly, leading to hirsuite attempts to get out of self-inflicted corners.
