Gender: doesn't matter
I've started about ten dozen different novels, got to page four, and quit.
But quitting doesn't faze me, it's just something I do when I grow out of a phase. Like when a teen grows out of a punk phase and into a zen phase, except it's writing.
One day, maybe, I'll find something I can stick to, but until then I shall post my poetry.
Enjoy poetry like one enjoys taste. If you have no appetite, maybe you should find a different kind of food to eat.
Enjoy life like one enjoys family. If you don't like it, and they follow you despite your attempts to get away, too bad. That's life!
