Hey, writers! What keeps YOU motivated?

So what is it?

I'm not talking about what inspires you or how you get ideas; I'm talking about what makes you start and finish a story? This is an area I have problems in. I'm pretty inspired and ideas tend to reproduce like sexually deprived rabbits in my mind, but actually sitting down to start anything is where I get stuck. I have no motivation to do it.

What motivates you? How do you keep yourself motivated through the process? Does there ever come a time where you feel sick of your idea? What do you do about that?

    I keep myself motivated because I have a goal: I want to get published before I graduate High School, of which I have just started. That I have plenty of support helps, too.

    I keep myself motivated by the idea of sharing a particularly good writing with friends, and usually I get so into my stories that I wanna finish it because I wanna know how it ends XD.

    Plenty--I'll get to points where I scrap all but the first three pages and restart because I feel it was too sappy, or totally off plot, etc... the original idea sometimes becomes ridiculous in my mind and I just have to crush it until it can be reworked into something better.

    Like I just said, though sometimes I'll just keep plugging away until I can go back and change parts I dislike to make it all fit.

    well, my main thing is people liking it, or giving me crticizm. I like to write, but i usually only keep writing a fic if people read it.
