Heartiest congratulations on completing NaNoWriMo! 2018 was my first time and first win too! :D
You’re so on point. Society puts a lot of pressure on us to do the ‘right thing’, as though there’s only one definition of right for everyone. I faced the same thing myself when I quit my MNC job — everyone was horrified, because as an MBA grad I was expected to work at an MNC and keep doing so forever, and I was a lunatic to even dream about anything else! Lots of respect to you for ignoring society and doing what you love!
The path of a writer is hard, but it’s unbelievably rewarding in the long run. I hope you get to publish all your books and achieve the success you deserve. Wish you lots of luck! ☺
