Whatever project you have going on now...
You can do it. You really can.
My first few books I tried to write never saw the end. I started to think I was totally incapable of finishing anything I started. Then I wrote a book that took me six years to write. But I finished it. My next book took me two years to write before I typed "The End."*
My latest WIP? That one took me one week to finish.
I realized it was all in my head. If I kept telling myself I couldn't finish anything, nothing ever got finished. But if I told myself something was going to be done in such-and-such time, it was done. No, it wasn't the prettiest thing in the world, but that's what the second draft is for.
You can't perfect a story until you've laid the groundwork. So lay it, and get'er done! :)
What are you working on now that you just wish you could get'er done? And yes, I am saying that phrase with a deep voice and heavy accent. :) I suggest you try it. It's very fun.
*For the purposes of this post, I'm pretending I type "The End" at the end of a manuscript, but I don't suggest you do it in real life.
