Hi people! This isn't a story. I have a question, and since this is a group of writers, I thought that you'd be a good group of people to ask!

My question is regarding prose writing. Recently, I started experimenting in short story writing. I have a three-thousand word story due in fifteen days. I have about 150 words of it done, and I have a tiny bit of the plot scribbled on a scrap of paper. My problem is that I’ve only written one other thing that long in my entire life. Yes, I’m scared lol. From past experience, I tend to get sick of the story if I make a plot out before I start writing, and then I’ll leave it for something new. My question is: How do I make myself stay with something that I’m tired of, without making a trial out of it? I know I need to work on my discipline, if I’m ever going to progress in this area...but it’s difficult. Any suggestions?
