“Be courageous and try to write in a way that scares you a little.” :Holley Gerth
You put your personal thoughts out there to be judged… and people are harsh.
Are people going to think I’m strange if I say this or that? What if I want to say Fuck, sometimes it’s necessary, but I don’t want people to think less of me…
I didn’t start calling myself a writer until I stopped allowing other people’s opinions to affect the words I jot down. For every person who think’s I’m odd, bitchy, not politically correct enough or just flat out doesn’t like me, there are plenty more who are just as fucked up as I am & can appreciate what I have to say.
I’ve mentioned wanting to write a book one or two, possibly a thousand times. It’s obnoxiously similar to my, I-should-start-a-blog statements I was making years ago…and then I finally did it.
I finally feel ready for my next feat. The idea of writing a book is more intriguing than scary at this point. I have so many stories that have started to form, swirling around in my head…but none have gotten me excited enough to physically write it out, develop characters & an entire story line.
An idea I can’t shake has finally entered my busy brain & I’m ready to start my next challenge.
I don’t know how long it’ll take me & I do not care.
