  1. *eyes my graveyard of unfinished WIPs and laughs nervously* I start SO MANY stories and end up shelving them “for later”. There have been a few projects I’ve just had to straight up quit though because I changed as a person and those weren’t the kinds of stories I wanted to tell anymore. Thankfully, it doesn’t happen that often but it does happen and you’re right that writers don’t talk about it as much.

    1. It’s happened to me, too. I started writing something to help me get through a thing and got through the thing before I finished the project. It just didn’t make sense to keep returning to it. But I think when you know, you know. You feel a little guilty, but then you move on. Hopefully.
