So there is this issue with writing where it becomes really difficult. You don't even know why it gets that way but it does get that way. Sometimes you draft something twenty times and it still doesn't make sense to you or you receive so many rejections, you want to just stop.
Writing, instead of becoming an escape, becomes what you want to escape from but you can't actually stop writing because...who are you then?
The good thing about this is...it eventually ends and you become a better writer because of it. You become a lot tougher and it reveals to you why you write. I mean...at least that's what it did to me.
PS: currently working on an Africans fantasy novel.
