Sex, sex, sex!

Now that I have your attention.

No, sex is not really the topic.  It's writing.  Trying to maintain interest in a project all the way through.  I have trouble with that.  At the beginning I get very excited about a novel or short story I'm working on.  The ideas fly fast and furious like bees buzzing around honey.  Can't get it down on paper fast enough.  Get all absorbed in the characters and plot.  But then...

Yes, then it comes screeching to a halt.  Can't figure out which direction to take, boredom sets in, real life pulls me away.  Or--another idea pops up for some other story and I find myself fantasizing about that brand new, never tried out story.

Come to think of it, writing is kinda like sex.
