What it means to me to be a writer


Whoa, it’s been a while since I’ve made a post. I’m sorry guys, I’ve been really busy but i’m back now!

Since I was young, I’ve loved reading and writing, English has and always will be my most favourite subject, I find the achievements of words amazing from the likes of Martin Luther Kings speech to the literature of Mark Twain, I truly believe that words can change the world. It takes once sentence to break a heart and a handful to make someones day, they possess so much power and I feel like many people fail to realise that. However, I do and I want my words in my writing to possess that power as well.

From writing novels to plays to sitcoms and movie scripts, articles and blog posts, writing never gets boring and if I go a day without writing, it’s like a stick of lead weighing me down because I haven’t been productive. Being able to write, to create new worlds and ideas with nothing more than a couple of paragraphs, to me, is an astounding thing to be able to do, the limits of words are endless and I find this both terrifying and incredible at the same time.

One day, I crave that feeling of being able to write down on application forms that i’m a writer, not a waitress or a student or a blogger, I want to be a writer. I can’t go a day without the clogs turning in my head, constructing thoughts of what to write next, it’s impossible not to think about writing for me. No matter what i’m doing, if it’s not writing then I feel like I’m wasting my time and as a professional procrastinator, feeling like i’m wasting my time is saying something.

I wish to be a writer one day but for now, it’s just Β me and my blog.

    I feel kinda the same. I’m studying IT at University and working part time at the coffie shop, but eh while I do this I constantly think of new ideas for stories. So yeah, I have had that ‘am I wasting my time’ feeling.

    This is quite inspiring and eloquently expressed. I can empathize with how you’re feeling since I feel the same way. I wish you the very best on your wonderful writing journey – it will be full of adventure, ups and downs, but it definitely won’t be boring!
