I could never be a professional writer.

I would never meet a deadline because I only write a paragraph a week. For some background, my first story took me 7 months to complete. I guess what I'm saying is that while my motivation wavers, I still stick with it in the end. I'm also saying that writing is a surprising laborious task for me. I used to look down on fanfiction as "too easy to do" compared to fanart. It's clear to me now that both activities are a huge pain in the ass that require a lot of skill and patience. Thankfully I don't have a huge following of people begging for more content (shoutout to all 4 of you!). I'm sure everyone will have forgotten about me anyway by the time I eventually submit my next project (which I am working on). But that's okay though. One thing I kept in my mind as I write stories is that I'm doing this for myself on my own time. If others like it, then it's a plus. But I do it all for personal satisfaction....

And maybe the attention, admiration of my peers,...
