*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.
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.
