Finish it because you want to read the whole thing and hold the book in your hands. As I was writing Solitaire I had no plans to get it published - instead I was convinced that I would write it and then get it made into a book using Blurb or a similar book printing website, just so I could hold the thing in my hands and flick through the pages and read the words that I had turned into a whole book. Just love what you're doing and don't feel you have to rush it. You don't have a deadline, after all!(less)

I was able to do most of my coursework and homework during school hours and I also just didn't do a lot of homework (if they weren't going to check it, I didn't do it!), which left me lots of time to do the things I actually enjoyed at home.
Writing brought me such joy and peace that I genuinely loved doing it and looked forward to it every single day. I didn't feel any pressure to write something amazing or write something that loads of people were going to read, like I feel now. I wasn't involved in any online writing communities - I wasn't even on Twitter - meaning I didn't ever compare myself to other writers. It just made me happy, so I did it!(less)
