IWSG: Quitting

This month's IWSG question is 'Did you ever say “I quit”? If so, what happened to make you come back to writing?' 

Short answer: Yes. My main reason for quitting was that I was too busy with school and didn't have enough time to write. Everytime I wanted to sit down and have some quality writing time, something (usually homework came up)-- either that or I was too tired to write since it was usually late at night
before I found even a spare second to have to myself.

My other reason for quitting writing was  that I didn't have anyone, either in real life or in online form, to read what I'd written. Writing is relaxing, but I really wanted to have someone read it and give me feedback. Besides, if you're like me and want to become a published author someday, having someone to read and critique your work is a logical place to start, right? I started writing again in Spring 2016 when I took an amazing creative writing class at college, where I made up my mind that I  was determined to become a published author someday. And thus, my writing career took off!
