We have so much and, yet, never enough.
I have two main prongs for this post on time:
- Studying anthropology AND becoming a decent writer both take a lot of time
- Once fairly knowledge, you have to spend a lot of time practicing your field/craft to continue improving–and there is always improvement to be made.
Most people who go into anthropology have to get a PhD in it–and in an era of student loans (in the U.S., at least) this can be a very big deal as funding is limited. A student will spend at least 8 years from Bachelor’s to PhD although anthropology is much more likely to take 10 – 12 years.
Writing is a craft that requires time, practice, and education to learn and no one will ever really master it. I’ve been writing since middle school but I’m years away from being published and, even then, it will take more time to improve.
So don’t worry and take your time! You’ll get there eventually as long as you don’t give up. 🙂
