You asked “ever wanted to give up”. I think the real question should be, “SHOULD I give up?” My answer is, for the sake of writing creations sprouting here and there everyday, DON’T EVER GIVE UP. If you do, one day the regret is going to hit you hard because someone will have produced something similar to what you were and that means it could never be shown.
Why not just wait until your friend how the new baby before starting up again.
