I feel like I'm having a problem with my writing. It feels rushed, like I'm going through what I'm writing too quickly. Here's a sample and tell me how it is: Yes, I was leaving my mother, one of my best friends in the world, for Olympia. Olympia wasn’t a bad place or anything, it was just that I was going to miss home, or rather, my old home, terribly. Dad’s last call sounded so lonely and sad, and he missed me a lot. On top of that, Mom was getting ready to travel the country with Phil, my step-dad. Phil was a minor league baseball player, and traveled often with his team. Does that sound rushed? Or am I just being paranoid?
