    So, I may have realised where I've been going wrong. I've been writing multiple stories but finishing none. The problem is, I write all of them from the POV of a teen girl. As a teen girl myself, I tend to shove my characteristics into the character. For instance, they're all sassy as hell. I get irritated by the character and give up.
    I've just started writing a story from the POV of a 40 year old male inmate of a prison in the future. So far, it seems to be working and I'm finding it easy to differentiate who the character is, from who I am personally.
    Here's to a successfully finished novel in the future.
