The "Oh My God, I Don't Want to Write This" point

I've reached that point. Everything I write is rotten, crap, etc, etc, etc.

I should through the story away.

I should start something else.

An amateur would.

And that's what stops me.

Writing is hard.

Writing is work.

But ultimately, writing is worth it.

I just have to keep reminding myself that I'm actually closer to the end than I am to the beginning.

If I keep that in mind...

...Then I won't be an amateur.

I'll be a writer.

A real writer. Goddammit.

I am a real writer.

Hell, yeah.


  1. Is this the 50% quitting point or the 75% quitting point? Both are unfun.

  2. 50%. I have the added joy of feeling like this again to look forward to, woohoo!
