Persevere. Stick with it and you'll be able to do it. Also, try not to set unrealistic goals (such as 10 worlds with 500 levels), because that will make it more likely you'll trash the project in the future.

It also helps to maybe assemble a small team to help you plan and develop a project! I've managed to make one project solo and let me tell you. It. is. tough. It requires a lot of patience and hard work.

Of course, others like to work alone at a slow pace. I'm sure you know we have a projects forum! Maybe you can try assembling a team for one of your unfinished projects to help finish it, or even start anew!

I don't really know how you could get bored finishing a project that you like, and if you don't like your current project, you should think of fun ideas and concepts to put in them, because nobody likes doing a project that their not engaged in. And just like the other two posts said, gather some people to help you if doing it alone proves too much. You could also put some elements of your trashed projects in your final one, kind of like how big companies change ideas and scrap others, and sometimes bring others back. Sorry for this long post, but it should somewhat help you out with any other projects you have in mind.

I have a kind of similar problem, I sometimes can't think of ideas to put in my levels, and other times I come up with ideas that just won't work with my existing projects. I guess I'll just have to keep trying to think of fresh ideas, but sometimes I don't know which of my projects to put them in, or which project to keep working on.

Due to a problem with my laptop, all my projects and levels have been lost. But fear not, for new ones will be arriving! (and hopefully completed)

I say you this that finding inspirational ideas can be coming up from everything you saw and play before. Let's say, if you listen to some music, there might be an occurrence for inspiration and ideas for your work in progress projects and levels. Samething goes to levels like if you want to make something like what the games did but into SMBX it can also work but if done correctly and such. There are a lot of ways to make things work around with ideas. Myself for instance, played that new game Shantae: Half-Genie Hero and that game alone gave me sooo many ideas you wouldn't believe it like music, level design, everything basically. So yeah, ideas can come up with literally everything... and if you run out, you can always check around for more.
