Writing is hard

Photo by Kinga Cichewicz on Unsplash School has begun again and so has my period. Sorry if you find me a little direct, but it is what it is. I’m feeling tired and I’m already looking forward to the next vacation. Once every week, I try to write a new blog post and a new chapter for my story on Wattpad, but let me tell you this. It’s hard. It isn’t because of the writing itself.…
