July 7 – What would make you quit writing?
Jayden: I want to say nothing, but I’m sure something could. I’ve thought about things like if I couldn’t physically type anymore, but there are dictation softwares that are pretty good nowadays. I don’t love them, and I definitely write better when I type it as opposed to think it out loud, but I could do it. So, physical ability wouldn’t stop me.
Um. I’ve written through miscarriage, pregnancy, having an infant, working full time plus extra jobs, graduate school, a pandemic, a job change, and a divorce. I don’t know that there’s anything that will take me away from writing permanently.
Richard: If I got my hands cut off, maybe? I’ve been told Alzheimer’s is an issue for some older writers. I can’t really think of anything else either. Basically, Jayden’s answer, but without getting pregnant and stuff.
Jayden: Oh yeah, I thought of Alzheimer’s, too, and it runs in my family, but I’m definitely hoping to avoid that. And oh look, we’re the same person!
