“Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.” -Albert Einstein
Even though I’ve been writing since a very young age, I couldn’t have planned a better career path. I just lived and let things unfold as they would. When I was passionate about nails, I went to nail school. When I was passionate about website design, I self taught myself. I’ve pursued a lot of different passions, but writing was at my core.
Some writers become accidental writers. Meaning there might be an event that happens in their life they are drawn to write about. Some know from very early on that they are writers. While others…later on, after they’ve gotten the kids off to college, get back to their true passion.
Poems, short stories, or novels.
This particular blog post is just to say, don’t give up before you try.
When I was a child it seemed like the day was so long. I was a Super Mario Bros. fanatic as a child. My whole family was. If I started playing from the time I got out of school until I went to sleep, that was a LONG time. You know this is when you’re trying to beat the game. The final stretch. You can’t stop playing, you gotta keep going. LOL.
That’s how you should be with the things you are passionate about. Continue to write, even IF you aren’t able to write everyday. As you go throughout your day think about your novel. Think about your plot, sub-plots, and characters. That’s just as beneficial as sitting to your computer and actually typing. Don’t discount the little things! They are just as important.
Keep writing. You can do it!
I will. Great article…I feel a subtle inspiration. GOD Bless..
Thanks! Keep writing!
Great post! I cannot agree with you more! Sometimes, things can get in the way and you aren’t able to write. It’s like that for me this week since I just got back from my trip and my mind hasn’t went back to “writing mode”. But, I have been thinking about where I’ll take the story, so I’m still working on it.
I always tell people to never give up. Writing isn’t going to give you instantaneous results. You have to keep pushing forward and be persistent in order to see the results you want. 🙂
I totally understand! I've had the same thing happen where I stepped away for a few days and it took me a while to get back into writing mode. But I normally give myself permission to adjust and that takes the pressure off 😉
