Finding the motivation.

I like telling stories orally.

My memory is pretty good, I mean aside from all the cocaine and other assorted drugs and booze I've consumed over the last 35 years.

What is in it for me..That's my motivation.

I could give a shit less about adoration. I want my dick sucked or squeezed til I shoot a load or three. Pay me or play me.

Or is that too brutally honest?

If ya can't beat 'em... pay someone to do it for you.

Honesty is alway good. :) we need men with attractived voices to do audio stories! Throw your hat in. I'd definitely get of to that. ;) or is that too brutally honest?

Making my stories light enough to balance the darkness in them. I like to write about dramatic (including emotionally traumatic) events and the life affirming consequences (eg. sex) that come afterward, but there has to be the right amount of hope and goodness and recovery in between those events.

My latest story is too hot to publish. My most recent story before that is Even Stranger In Lust

No, brutally honest would be that your kryptonite is a lack of skill to write, you doofus.

And how dare you use doc holiday as an avatar... you're more like sam eliot in that movie to be honest.

I tend to get diverted very easily. I'll start writing one story and then before long get an idea for another. Pretty soon I have several going at once and progress on finishing one of them is painfully slow. It's a blessing - having many ideas - and a real curse. I have 18 in the works as I write this...

Join the club :) well populated. It's great when my 'in progress' folder diminishes and my 'completed project' grows. I'm the same way. Some of my stories were originally ideas that I wanted to include in my larger pieces but they just didn't fit there. Thus, I've competed more quickies than anything.

1) I get distracted very easily. It's best if I just tackle a story head on until it's completion because the more "breaks" I have the likelier it is that something else will catch my interest and my attention will split. What ends up happening is that my original work never gets completed. Or if it does, it's not until weeks, if not months (heck, if not years), later. I have so many half-finished stories on my computer that it's ridiculous.

2) Details. I'm way too detail oriented, I think. I try not to be because I know how important it is for readers to be able to use their imaginations while reading, but it's kind of hard.

3) Tenses. I have serious issues with keeping my tenses consistent. It's probably because I frequently alternate between different POVs and tenses. Case in point, the last story I wrote was written from a third person perspective in present tense, but the story I'm currently writing is from a first person perspective in past tense. Past perfect continuous tense seems to be my default tense, but it's not ideal for fiction writing, I don't think, so I try not to use it too often these days. Anyway, I write whatever feels "right" to me at the time, but I think the constant switching back and forth is messing me up. I take special care to look out for tense inconsistencies when I edit because it's a real problem.

4) I have a bad habit of using passive voice. I need to break it.

5) I always worry whether or not my stories seem realistic and believable. I'm constantly asking myself questions along the lines of "does their response seem plausible?" and "does this scene make sense?" and "is this something someone would actually do in real life?", etc, etc.

6) Grammar/Punctuation. Yeah, I was that kid who slept through English class whenever the teacher started discussing the "rules" of the language. Language technicalities have always bored me, and apparently I don't have the attention span to self-learn. Anyway, most of what I know is what I've picked up through excessive reading. I don't really KNOW how to use (some) proper grammar and punctuation. I just use whatever happens to feel right and/or flow well. Obviously I need to actually sit my ass down and learn this properly because I'm never going to become a better writer otherwise.

I have a folder on my computer of at least 50 uncompleted stories. :( My issue is continuing them once I begin writing. That, and finding the time. Lack of motivation + lack of time = no bueno. :(

Mine would probably be how i try my best not to repeat things in my scenes as i write them

I struggle not basing characters on people I know... Hugs I'm really close with my friends so I know most of their responses; it just makes my stories easier to write! xx

Make love not horcruxes! >^_^<

Check out my stories, you'd be surprised what I can do :)

My brain completely disconnects from my imagination, and I have no idea if what I'm writing matches what I see in my mind. It feels like I'm trying to walk across a tightrope while wearing a blindfold.

You see, right now I'm imagining feeling a soft breast gently pressing against my bicep. I turn to look at the tall redhead standing to my right. My eyes meet hers, blue and sparkling above the dark rim of her glasses, and she grins at me. I smile back, then return my attention to the other people in the group. But I can't concentrate on their inane coctail party conversation. I'm instead consumed by the tactile sensation against my arm, and wondering if she's doing it on purpose.

Now that's as vivid as shit for me, but I have no idea if any of you are getting it. Oh God, please, somebody validate me!

Oh yeah, and what everyone else said too.

verb tenses....grrr i so hate them! besides that i always have to go back and correct where there needs to be commas. I always thank my lucky stars when the mods are nice to me and only send back one correction.
but like others i think it is easier to write about personal stories wither they are completely true or almost true. Its easier to relate and therefore makes a better flow and more believable.

For me right now my kryptonite is bad writer's block! It has gotten so bad for me that I don't even want to put pen to paper anymore!

I have trouble remembering the names of minor characters (and occasionally I'll flip major characters' names around at the beginning of a story). One time I published a story with a character's name spelled three different ways. Embarrassing.

AbigailThornton I don't understand what why people always say that. You need to read other people's stuff. My stories are not meant to be learned from. People can learn from them sure, but the first thing is the store is meant to entertain. And if they learn something on the way of being entertained so be it. When I write everything is so deliberate. A lot of my writing is made up of things the great teachers of storytelling tell you not to do. For example, they say don't be heavy handed in your writing it will only slow the story down, make it feel clucky, and keep the reader from coming into the story; yet my heavy handedness is what allows for all those things. And why is that? I don't know and it can't be learn from reading my story. You have to look with in yourself. Conventional thought says don't switch points of view. I do it in all my stories and bring the story to a level other wise it wouldn't have been able to reach. Conventional thought says don't use passive voice. I use passive voice a lot and it draws the reader in. It is a technique I made up, as far as I know. The technique involves the passive voice and usage of a vague word, such as, 'it' to trick the reader's mind into going into their own mind saying what 'it' means. This way 'it' or what ever the vague word may be it makes a more close connection. After all when a person reads every one will respond differently to the same story so using this technique makes sure however they take it that it will have maximum impact. But in order to use this technique other things must take place in orer for it to work. You have to already establish was the vague word is or make sure they will know the vague word is when the time comes. Also there needs to be a transition into the moment where the vagueness comes into play. I didn't set out to make the technique instead I was writing a scene that needed the technique and so the technique was born out of need.
These past few days I have taken the advices of you all and read some stories. However, I only wanted to read stories that were deemed good. So I picked from the editor's choice. I learned a lot from reading these stories. Mostly mistakes that never occurred to me, not because I'm that great but because writing style naturally kept me from these mistakes. Now that I know of these mistakes it will make it even more likely I will not make these mistakes. Another thing I learn is that hard work is no substitute for talent, and talent can learn from hard work's example. I learned this from buzz's story that I read. He took adventage of all the opportunities and did all the right things. I couldn't fault the story but at the same time it didn't have fire factor. The quality that makes you stand up and take a pause from the read as you relax your giddiness. And that made me realized where he was coming from and at sametime me realize where I was coming from.
Here is an example of the technique I was talking about above:
Dismal looks forward and he sees it; from his feet up to his head and back down to his toes; and without a doubt he feels it when it bounces into his eyes, like a busty blond on a beach, glistening and beautiful, it bounces with all its loveliness, enticing him and captivating his attention; the golden shimmer enthralls him and he begins to lust for it, but this is not a beach, he is not a lover, and there is no bouncy blond, the cries of pain and the blood of lives spilt all around him makes this clear. It does not matter because if their was a lovely blond coming at him he would kill her becausemhe is a fighter and thismis war. He steps forward, "Golden knight?"

You don't understand why I'm telling you, a writer, to write?

Your post is nearly 700 words long - you could have been halfway though a story with that word count.
