Thanks, everybody. Glad to have found a forum that seems stocked with some decent folks.

Some clarification, just to let you all further in to my particular brand of writing psychosis: by "never finish anything," I mean I tend to not even finish first drafts. I'm a serial abandoner, not an over-tweaker.

Once I get a draft down, I'm actually pretty okay at editing and getting to the point where I'm satisfied enough to call it "finished." I love tearing into my own work with edits...I need crime scene tape and chalk by the time I'm done marking them up. It's that initial rush of determination that eludes me. But that's why I'm hang around people who do the work. Maybe I'll make myself useful at some point, too. It's been known to happen.
