writing isn’t just writing. writing is researching topics for hours because you’re trying to write a character who’s smarter than you. writing is reading books in the genre you write as much as possible. writing is daydreaming of plot lines in your free time so that when you sit down to write you actually know what you want to say. writing is journals of scribbles of ideas you don’t want to forget. writing is deleting scenes that you love but don’t fit the story. writing is so much more than just a word count.
