Writing's not difficult. Never let yourself think that taking your thoughts and spilling them onto a document is anything like a challenge. After all, it's your story, and you'll tell it; and you'll tell it the way you'd tell a story to your friends and family at a gathering. It's entertainment, for Pete's sake. Simple stuff, only made difficult in any way because of distractions.
There's so many of those, aren't there? Video games, significant others, volunteer work, careers. And while all these are great and excellent and wonderful and necessary, they still separate your butt from that chair and your fingers from your keyboard, and therefore your mind from your story.
The secret to good writing is good writing habit, and unfortunately, even though I'm certain that's the only real secret, it's one I haven't been very good at keeping up with. I try writing a thousand words a day, and only a hundred or so get written despite my greatest attempts.
What I'm getting at, kids, is that Brony_Fife, the once ambitious fanfic writer you knew, simply can't improve, and I'm so, so sorry.
Don't think for a minute that I'm giving this up. Despite its difficulties, writing and storytelling are two of my favorite things. They give me an outlet for my despair and my happiness and my thoughts and my imagination and my faith. I can't possibly just toss that aside in favor of anything.
But I'm not the kind of disciplined writer you guys definitely deserve. So I understand if you guys have drifted away to someone who can at least update regularly and write a lot. But in the meantime, don't give up on me. I can make it.
Just a hundred more words.
That's all I want.
