No. I am not finished.
I am not a professional writer. I am not published. And maybe never will be, who knows. I write purely as a hobby.
Being constantly questioned by people on whether I am finally finished with my novel is…annoying. It’s nice when I get asked in a nice tone, when they wonder what my novel will be about and what my progress is. But when they ask in a tone of “ugh-are-you-actually-writing-a-novel” or “why-are-you-not-finished-yet” is not helpful. Not helpful for my self-confidence and not helpful in general. Will I be finished one day? I hope so. And hopefully soon. But writing a novel is no small feat. It takes time and brain power. I hope people realize that the book doesn’t just magically appear.
