Writing is so much more than just putting words down on a page. Let's talk toxic productivity culture among writers.
I love this! I’m also a burst writer, and so much of my writing happens when I’m out in the world living life, and breaking story in my mind. When it’s time to actually put pen to paper (or finger to keys), it’s quick -- and not at regular times, or daily. I find that the more time I spend online, the more my writing stagnates, and that voice of “Am I failure?”gets louder than the voice of my next story. Really appreciate knowing there’s another writer out there (whose work I enjoy, even!) with a similar outlook.
Yup! I got an ADHD diagnosis and learned that " just sit in the chair and write" was never useful advice for me despite it making me feel terrible about myself for most of my life.
