Starts and Stops

I've had the urge to be a writer for as long I can remember. I've won a couple of contests when I was a kid and teen.  I have been told by others that my ideas would make intersting reading. I read about plots and structure, love doing research on obscure topics and have been fascinated by biographies of famous writers since forever. Heck, I have at least a half of shelf of how-to-write books.  So why do I start and stop my writing. I blame the usual suspects: busy with work, no motivation, start a whole new different story, over analyze, on and on.  Start then stop.

I currently have a list of 62 potential book and script titles, the outline for a craft book, the start werewolf novel, a supernatural pirate thriller, 2 romantic comedy movie scripts and another half dozen of other story ideas. I have the starting down pat! Middle and seeing an end, not so much.
Is any one out there reading this little ole blog? Any tips on getting past the starting block?
