Do you ever think that sometimes it's too late to start writing? I'm already eighteen years old and people who are younger than me have already achieved so many things. I like to write, but I'm definitely not skilled enough yet. Most often, instead of finishing a prompt I find myself wallowing in self-pity. I try not to be discouraged but a lot of times I just find it really hard to continue you know? As if there is no sense in writing anymore. Why write? Why give form to your thoughts when you can't even do the job well? I know I should be writing for myself but I just want to feel a little bit of validation that I can do it too, that I can accomplish great things. Why would you bake cookies when no one else wants to eat them? It's just really hard for me. I have a fiction story on mind right now and it's just a cliche prompt but I really hope I can establish the story properly. Any tips?
