Today, a relative of mine asked me, no, he told me to give up writing. For two months. To study for this stupid standardized test called the SAT. I’ll tell you right now. If you want to keep me sane, I suggest you not ask me that.
And for that exact reason, I promptly refused.
Of course, I can’t just tell him that I would go insane if I didn’t write. 1. He would get even more angry at me and consider it an addiction, hence stopping me from writing altogether. 2. Who in the right mind would believe that?
But it’s true.
I’d rather keep my sanity.
