I've been writing stories and essays almost my whole life. I almost never finish the stories, and only occasionally the essays. I'm working on that, though as soon as I'm finished writing this I'm going to start another piece. I figure one day when I'm 45 or so, I'll finish everything all at once and have no idea what to do with myself. Until then, I'll start submitting work in an effort to feel the obligation and desire to finish more.
