Writing

He worked day and night on a story he wanted to complete.

The deadline looked too scary as days passed. Words kept disappearing , paragraphs kept getting deleted. He had almost completed it when the thought struck. He had to change the structure of the entire story , he had to be liked.

He gave up.

He wanted to be loved not just liked. He knew he would come back because no amount of anything could stop his love for writing.

He gave up on the battle to win the war.

He gave up on a masterpiece.

  1. I think every writer goes through this at some point. Some days it happens many time through the day, but we should never, ev er give up. Yours is a cautionary tale for many, I think. Well thought out!

  2. THANK YOU everyone for your love and support. It means a lot to a writer who goes through a tough phase and it’s because of you friends , we get the courage to fight back.

    Thank you.
