Yes! I write for fun too, but I like seeing the finished product, so I'd like to put in the effort to make it easy to read...if only I knew how. =P Sometimes it hurts to cut the meandering scenes, but the result is so much better after it! =) The thing is, I can edit well when I have short scenes to focus on. But how to get to the short scene stage? No clue.
Yes, I know what you mean. It's a blessing. I am almost never bored when I'm writing, because the paintings in my dreams are so vivid, that I just have to get them down! Seriously, I always have to have paper with me, because I'm always getting inspired by something. And it is a blessing. I wouldn't trade in my head at all! =)
This February/March has been more than usually insane. I just had 5 new plot bunny ideas! :-)
What happens with me is that after the usual 50k falling apart, I feel like starting a new bunny, just because it's always more exciting and new. After 50k, structure becomes a big problem, so it's daunting to proceed.

Hey, I see a ton of really great conversation, but no chance in heck is it following the "no backspace key" rule!
Unless you guuys type better than I do!
I agree witht he plotting problems. I think I might do better if I planned on publishing someday. Maybe As it is, I write my ideas, have fun with them until they manage to bore me to tears (too much running around in circles or I finally need to rewirte/edit), and then I start on something new.
Like now! Ia am tired of my current edit project so I am starting somethng new. Whatever that may be. Ha! And my editing project (unnamed) rprobably has over 100k. I haven't checked. It could probably be a triliogy by bthe time I finished it.
Okay. I really hate ignoring the backspace key. I'm ready to type my novel now. I believe I'll try write or die (with backspacing allowed!) and try to brainstorm for 20 minutes. Bye for now!
