“Just write every day of your life. Read intensely. Then see what happens. Most of my friends who are put on that diet have very pleasant careers.”
—Ray Bradbury, WD
Why is it that most people write? I read somewhere once that some people write just to write. They see it as a career or a way to gain money, so they pursue it. But I’ve found something about writing that I can’t compare to any of that. For me writing is at times a way for me to escape But more so it is a way for me to release and share my thoughts.
Every experience I’ve faced in life now turns to stories and even characters who face the same situations. It all in turn transforms into worlds ready to show people ways to get through things. Even if it is not a story per say I manage to incorporate a way to motivate or encourage people, even if it is just a quote or an article.
I seem to write now to help people. Before I would think that writing was easy, sure the words flow naturally at times, but there are days where you just can’t find the words coming out of your mind or heart. I also would think that I could simply just write whatever I wanted. I will be honest, I haven’t taken any writing classes. I would love to take the proper classes but I also know that just writing at times is good too. I may not know how to properly edit any of my works but I know that writing is a passion now.
I may or may not seem a career in the future as a writer. I am currently writing a story that will one day hopefully may be a book. I continuously write short stories and articles, I try to inspire people in any and all ways. To any inspiring writer’s out there or people that just want to write, do so.
