Post Getting stuck
I've been writing in stops and starts, which is just normal for me with my busy family life. As i approach the end of my first rough draft though, I'm finding myself uninspired. Maybe uninspired is the wrong word...I'm just so eager to be done that I am having trouble getting motivated to finish my writing. During the time that I set aside for myself, I basically fantasize about being finished and working through the edits. I fantasize about being completely done and producing the final product.

Does anyone else do this? How do you get it together and focus on your story again?

Kris

When it comes to motivation there are different methods. But what works for me the best is just doing it in bits and pieces (like you said).

15 minutes a day, then twenty, and so on.

I have written the majority of my two books using an audio recorder. I record in my car. I record when going on long runs. I then type it up. It is hard for me to just sit and write.
