And that’s my biggest obstacle in becoming a great writer.
As natural as writing has become for me, there are times where I just don’t feel the need to write.
Write everyday!, they say. That’s how you build your craft.
I wouldn’t doubt it either. Maybe I should.
Even if I don’t have something to say, writing prompts would be a good start.
I think it’s pretty doable.
I think doing something you’re passionate about every day adds some value to your life.
Instead of just surviving, you’ll be living with reason.
Even if it is just “having fun”.
I dream of the days I make a good deal and have some books on a shelf.
Until then, I’ll write as much as possible. Even if I don’t want to.
If you haven’t already heard, I just released a new E-book for only $2.
Here are the links.
It’s called A Road Toward Enlightenment. I wrote it when I was 15 and this is the re-edited version.
I think back to when I first started writing and I see myself in maybe 6th or 7th grade, typing on my first laptop, a story about 3 cats in the woods.
This is also a story I’m re-editing, as mentioned in previous posts.
I realized while trying to rewrite it last year, I went about it so wrong; leading me to not even finishing the first chapter.
I think I’ll pick it back up again this winter, a very comforting time to write.
It’s crazy to think that writing has become a passion for me.
After releasing my first online book in 10th grade it never dawned on me that I’d fall in love. No, it was a year later.
I remember the moment exactly.
It was my first day of English class at a new school. We were reading The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost.
Our task was to break the poem down and share what we thought it meant.
The next was to write our own.
It was that day I realized how intricate poetry is and how someone’s words can have a million different meanings yet spoken to beautifully.
That entire year I filled my notes with poems I wrote and read.
Ever since then I fell in love with writing in general.
6 years, I guess you could say. Wow.
this was just a bit of my writing thoughts.
I wonder the obstacles others have in their craft. Is it consistency? I know mine is.
I’d love to know.
I’d love to talk.
Are you there?
