i write when i have a free second, to keep the words flowing-as most writers do. but i find it difficult to stick with and commit to characters, and the situations they're in. i've always been someone who gets carried away at the start and gives up i guess, which is obviously detrimental to writing.
i just find i'm always writing short scenes and them abandoning them, so that i now have hundreds scrawled on notes pages or on pieces of paper. although this is undoubtedly helpful to developing a writing style, i feel like i'll never be able to spend years with the same characters. i just like creating snippets of life: descriptions or conversations, and then never really know where to go from there. when i try to carry them on they just seem to wilt under lack of purpose.

has anyone experienced this, or can anyone help? i love writing as much as ever, i just can't get stories to move on their own.
