I’m about one third of the way through a Mass Effect fanfiction. Whether or not it’s any good, there are at least a few followers who give a damn what happens next in the story and that’s enough for me.
I’m surprised how much I’m enjoying writing. I thought it’d be sort of like dieting. Feeling good about accomplishing a SHOULD but struggling with it. But actually, I’m really motivated to keep going. I wouldn’t call it easy, but I never have trouble with WANTING to keep it up.
