I've deleted stories I know I will never touch again.
Anyway, I decided to step away from writing so many Reader-Inserts. This is not something sudden—it's been on my mind for years. Devoting my energy to it has been eating away at my original fiction. Because, honestly, most people only take a look at a reader insert for the "pairing" or fandom... instead of legitimate creativity, characters, and plot. The "reader" will always either be one detail away from an full-blown OC or too vague to be anything of importance.
Long story short: I've always written for fun. Reader-inserts are quite tedious for me now. Will I still write them? Most likely, but they are not high on my priorities.
