Hey everyone, how are you?
It is time to get serious about my writing. So, I need to get my head down and start writing properly.
I have been thinking about it a lot and I need to get out of my student ways of thinking. As much as I loved my student days they are, for the moment, behind me and I need to really focus on the whole aspect of being a writer. If it is something that I want to make a career out of. This means no more goofing off, when I could be writing. It means getting serious about short stories and novels as well as poetry. It means getting myself out there. And if I am honest, it is scary. But nothing will fall into my lap, I’ve got to grind.
This means that this morning rather than lying in I need to get up. Get up and sit at the desk and start writing. Even if it is just rubbish, words can be edited a blank page cannot. It’s getting into a routine where I write daily, even if it is for just ten minutes. I know that there is a chance of failure and that nothing might come of it. But I have a better chance of succeeding if I try, than if I don’t. I don’t know exactly what has brought this on, but I have some theories. I know that motivation is going to be hard, but as a friend said to me. Ask yourself why you are doing it.
I also know that I will have to start reading more. I read a lot as it is, but my speed is not that great at the moment. It is partly due to my dyslexia, but also because lately I have lost a lot of focus. But I am going to read more and the more that I read the faster I will become. I also have a book coming tomorrow that I am hoping will help me with the mental side of things.
Thank you for reading and I hope that you have a good day.
