Star Trek: The Next Generation (I only have one season left)
Doctor Who (I stopped before David Tennant stops being the Doctor)
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D (I made it half way through season 1)
Firefly (I know, I'm ashamed, but I only watched the first episode)
Criminal Minds (I really only watch a few, skipping around)
NCIS (I've seen every episode, until Ziva left and then I stopped watching)
H20 Mermaids (I only have one season left)
Mako Mermaids (Yes, I have a mermaid problem and I stopped after season 1)
Jane the Virgin (I just started this one, but I already might stop)
Gilmore Girls (I watched all of season 1, skipped around, and watched the last season)
Parenthood (I stopped after season 2)
.... etc .....
Merlin (it took me a year after the series ended to finish)
Sherlock (I just watched the most recent episode two months ago)
M*A*S*H (I actually binge watched this series in two and a half months)
(Yes, I finished Star Trek: Voyager and Enterprise before they were on Netflix, so I don't count them.) There's a bit of a problem with the first list. It's not that I don't like those shows since I LOVE Star Trek and Doctor Who, but I'm not a finisher. Yes, I'm a busy person with two jobs and attempting to be a writer, but that's not it.
I don't like things to end.

But I'm that way in writing sometimes. I can't seem to write a book to the end. The amount of unfinished chunks of books on my computer is probably embarrassing. I don't know if that is the problem with the book I'm writing for NaNoWriMo this month, but I failed to finish it during the July Camp NaNoWriMo session and it's been bothering me since. I want to finish this book, but I feel like it just sucks. I know first drafts aren't supposed to be perfect, but I'm hard time seeing this one ever be good. But I want to finish it and I can't.
I'm trying NOT to let this book defeat me and I want to finish it, but... bleh, it's pretty hard. Maybe once I'm finished with this book, I will finally take the time to move some of those shows to my Finished list. Do you give up on books, TV shows, or writing because you don't want it to end?
