Since I started writing daily four months ago, the feeling that writing is what I want to do has only gotten stronger. However, during that time my interests have wandered to mediums like film, podcasts, and comics. I've continued to write, but I've also briefly explored those mediums too. They were fun to dabble in, but they would take a lot of time and effort to get better at.
What I have learned, which seems obvious now, is that I need to focus on just one storytelling medium—writing. By splitting my time and energy between writing and illustration right now, I don't think I'll be able to excel at either. Moving forward I am going to keep my focus, as much as I can, on writing stories and working hard to grow as a writer.
