Writing: Progress of a Writer

Writing: Progress of a Writer

 

The Reality

Writing has always been a safe haven for me throughout my life. It was always my way of escaping my life on a daily basis. So if you didn’t catch me outside with the neighborhood kids then I was probably laying on the floor at my grandmother’s feet working on a poem or something. Many times during my childhood I would write a short story or act out one of my plays just to escape the chaos around me. Writing quickly became my home away from home and no one had access but me!

Even to this day, writing still remains my favorite place to go when I feel like things aren’t making sense. However, something that I have realized over the years is just like any other relationship in my life, writing has its ups and downs.

let’s just say, I am my own worse enemy when it comes to a lot of things in my life and writing is no different. I am constantly questioning whether or not my writing is good enough, not just for others but for myself as well. Every time I write a post, I literally have to have my cheer squad (my family of course!) cheer me on just to press the post button cause I just want it to be good enough! Funny, I know! but who doesn’t like a little bit of motivation from their biggest support? It’s the little things like that, that keep me going some days.

I always find it difficult to qualify myself as a writer and that throws me for a loop! For me, the fact that I haven’t published anything is what keeps me from acknowledging myself as a writer. Lately though, the more I work on my novel the more confident I am becoming! I  am also working on other short stories and poetry as well as reading a lot more. One book that has been a great inspiration to me is Jeff Goins: You are a Writer (so start ACTING like one). It wasn’t until I read this book that I was confident enough to call myself a writer. He really does a great job of helping me realize that I am a writer no matter what stumbling blocks I’ve encountered. Having reading inspiration helps keep me focused on perfecting my craft and I definitely recommend checking this book out!

The journey of exploring my passion for writing has been a fun experience but it has definitely been pushing me out of my comfort zone too! Writing means baring your soul for the world to see and allowing people in to your personal creative side. Nevertheless, Every part of this journey motivates me to continue growing not only as a writer but also as a person.       

What helps keep you motivated with your writing?

Ranting: Excuse my language!

Ranting: Excuse my language!

 

Warning: This is me ranting so read at your own risk!

Hello fellow bloggers and people of the internet! I’ve been working on controlling my anger for the past couple of months so I am definitely in need of a release and having a good ole ranting session is what I decided on, so here goes!

Why can’t people say things out of their mouth and actually mean what they say? I swear for the fucking life of me I just don’t get it. If you know that what you are agreeing to or committing to is something that you don’t have the discipline or just plain fucks to give on the subject then just mind your fucking business and stay in the lane that is provided for you! I mean seriously! It would help make life so much easier for the people depending on your word.

Playing victim in a situation you’ve created. Omg! This shit right here drives me absolutely insane!! Seriously grow the fuck up! We are adults! If you make a choice to do or say something that you know will have adverse affects then be prepared for the consequences that come along with it! Don’t pretend like you don’t understand the emotion being handed to you just own up to your shit and make it right.

My next rant is about reaching out and spending time. Now even I can admit that I haven’t always been good at this one so I am a lot more understanding. However, it still sucks and therefore it is part of my rant today. If a person is taking the time to put in effort and reach out and spend time with you but you always blow them off don’t accuse them of switching up on you when they decide to take a step back. We are all busy and life is happening not just for you and me but everybody! If for some reason you just don’t want to be around that person maybe letting them know would be a better option then allowing them to waste their time on you.

Yeah I understand that sometimes life sucks but be considerate of others, life is happening to them too!

Have a great day!
