So, just a little tidbit. I notice you seem really down about never finishing that novel that you wrote ~80 pages of. I had the same problem, and I realized the solution. Cut the larger goal up into little goals. Every time you finish one of the smaller goals, you get a sense of achievement, and it motivates you. It's a great way to keep your writing flowing, as the achievement leads to a good mood and subsequent motivation. Also, there's a lot of good advice on this thread! Best of luck, Wolf!
