Stopped being fun and I wasn't writing as well as I wanted to. Felt too much pressure from it, so I just let it go. My author page was deleted too. Not too surprising tbh.

I do a lot of writing for work. A lot of reporting on local and economic news, deep dive explainers, success stories, and financial advice. It's making it difficult to write my own stuff not only because of time but because my writing style is more ambiguous and wordy, which makes it hard to switch from one to another.

And I'm hella lazy.

That really reminds me of a parody I once wrote of lazy, lame modernist poetry.

I flat out suck at writing and have a sort of mental block when it comes to writing fiction. I did write a few short stories years back, but I quickly felt like it just wasn't really gonna be my thing. 90% of everything I wrote were meticulous descriptions of places, for some reason. Then, whenever I had to start figuring out a plot or some conversation, it died on me.
