In order to become a writer you must WRITE (what a surprise) and READ books (to expand your vocabulary). It doesn't matter what you write, and how much, you just write. Anything and everything that comes to your mind. You are 13 years old (according to your profile), so there is no need to concern yourself about writing AND finishing a BOOK. Write short stories. Practice makes perfect.
For now, worry yourself more about SCHOOL, and how will you finish it. Store ideas that come to your mind for later. Think them through, and then start putting them on paper. Think about your characters' back story, make up an interesting plot, and (very important!) - USE GOOD vocabulary. If the vocabulary is not good, then it doesn't matter how cool your characters are - your story will not be readable.

I totally know what you're talking about. I've started dozens of stories that I've come to resent and then just abanndoned. But I've learned you've got to keep going with it, see it through even if you think your story is silly or stupid. Who knows? You might think of something new that you totally love! Or, you might write it all out and stil hate it. In that case, good! You know that story wasn't good and you can use it as an example of "what not to do". Writing bad stories means you won't make the same mistake twice - you kow what you did wrong and you'll learn form it for the next time.
What I suggest is planning your story out. Make sure you know what your beginning, middle, and end are before you start writing so youhave some direction and aren't just writing aimlessly about nothing. That's not to say you can't change things as you go - of course you can, that's the beauty of story telling! But have some idea, so you have somethimg to work toward.
Anyway, that's my advice :)

Start out by knowing what you want your story to be about! Make grabbing characters that even you like! Don't care what others say, what pops into your mind write it even if it sounds "dumb"! Sci-Fi became huge and its VERY dumb (to me) Get a connection to your story! Don't leave your Character hanging!

Just make yourself keep going. You can always change it later when you revise it. I can relate to you because I have that same problem. You can always try making an outline for your stories. Write down the name of the chapter and what is suppose to happen in that chapter. It helps me, hope it helps you too. Good luck with writing.
:-D

Hahaha i do the same thing. Well like suggested above me just start with short stories and maybe this is what i did with mine, think of two of your best stories and somehow mesh them together. And also, just tell yourself to stick out, and just forget about trying to finish it and fall into your words. Don't worry about what someone might think or if its good enough. Just lose yourself in the story
