To Write Or Not To Write, That Is The Question

I, along with millions of others, have the dream of becoming a writer.  It’s a romantic profession, or so writer wannabes think.  I see myself writing the next best thing on the New York Times best seller list, because for bloggers these days a memoir or novel is the next step, right?

Except right now I’m still trying to make it as a blogger.  Make it?  What does that mean?  Do I want eleventy thousand people following me?  Would that make me a successful blogger?  Or would writing more often, practicing putting words together, make me a “writer,” whether blogging or writing novels?  What in the hell do I want?

When I’m not at my laptop typing drivel in to my uber private blog that no one can see (except for everyone at WordPress and hackers extraordinaire) I’m going about my life, working a day job, keeping a house, looking after those old people who created me and trying to get the most out of what’s offered to me in life.  The thing is, whenever I’m off doing all of those other things all I can think about is what I could be writing.  So I sit down and try to write, and all I can think about is what else I could be doing to inspire the writing I’m trying to do.

What in the hell is with that?

The bottom line is I mostly want to be doing something else.  Therefore, all I need is discipline and determination to do whatever it is I’m doing at the moment.

Help.

 

The End

    Very accurately stated! Like you, my mind constantly wonders and thinks about my next writing topic. The best part about writing is the gift of being able to look at things differently than others.

      So true – some day I hope to find a voice that is truly unique and truly me. It’s in there, but clouded by so many things. Let’s find our voices and shout them out!
