Quenching the Fire

How long has it been? A month? Two months? When was the last time I wrote a post? I don’t really remember but here I am, alive and well.

My blog has shifted more so to being able to write my poetry. It seems that I have slowly found myself drifting to poetry and abstract art these past few months. For those who may have followed me due to how I was before, I apologize. I am not saying I will strictly reserve my blog now to those two forms of art, I am just saying that I love to do them more. I will still come on from time to time and encourage everyone depending on time and experiences I face.

One thing I have felt myself compelled to relay is the reason I do art. Some call it expression, giving life to thoughts and emotions, for me it has to do with being able to quench the fire I have inside.

We’ve all heard the saying, “If there is something you dream about, chase after it.”. For me, writing is an essential part of my soul, who I am. Stretch back to little, young me and see that a massive part of my life revolved around writing, art in general.

I needed an outlet, a way to express myself, this is true. I also understood that if I didn’t create or allow myself to flow with words or color, I felt like I was missing something.

I was fortune enough to attend megacon once again and I sat amongst other writers for a panel/workshop. The whole feel of being around like minded people fuels my inspiration and allows me some motivation to keep going. I am not a well known author, let’s face the facts or even a known blogger. But all of this does not stop me from continuing my path as a writer. I feel like the fires within my heart are only quenched when I do what I love, writing, poetry, and art such as abstract.

So then I come to everyone as one artist to another. Keep going. This seems to be my slogan now. I tell my girlfriend this all the time when I see her work. Don’t think about the what ifs or becoming the next big thing, just do what you love and keep going. You can push in long hours and see your dreams being accomplished 20 years from now. Keep focused and keep going, quench the fire.
