A lot of people tell you that you have to write every single day.
Otherwise you'll forget how to do it.
I don't know if this is true.
Maybe it is.
Maybe it isn't.
What I do know though is that if I stopped writing just for one day, it would be so damn hard for me to get started again.
Simple because if you break the chain once, if you skip something just once, it will never be just once.
That's at least what usually happens to me.
You'll skip it a second time. Then a third time. And on and on and on.
Until you stop for good.
Until all the doubts start to kick back in.
And the voices living inside your head.
And then you'll come up with all sorts of excuses.
"I wasn't good enough anyway."
"No one read it."
"No one even cares."
And on and on and on.
And that's the real reason why I write every single day...
So why do I even write?
I don't know.
Why do I even breathe...?
