As I write, I'm like a swim practice. When first start, I have many ideas and things come to me easil. This like how you have lots of energy at the beginning of practice and start off fast. While writing I also like to take little breaks in between to refresh my brain or to think about what to write next. Like my swimming technique, my writing skills have a lot of room for improvement and needs a lot of editing. After writing for a while, I usually lose interest and have trouble getting down new ideas. My sentences become repetitive and thoughts are sloppy. This is like the end of practice when you start to slow down and get extremely tired after swimming for an hour and a half. As a writer, I am a swim practice, easy but hard and very, very long.
