“Writing isn’t about making money, getting famous, getting dates, getting laid, or making friends. In the end, it’s about enriching the lives of those who will read your work, and enriching your own life, as well. It’s about getting up, getting well, and getting over. Getting happy, okay? Getting happy.” — Stephen King
I consider writing to be a way of life and without it, everything would seem a little bit pointless, or simply not as interesting. I find that writing every single day allows me to broaden my horizons, as well as create magical imaginary worlds, in which, I can step straight into whenever the real world is giving me a rough time. I find a lot of writers do the very same thing. It gives them hope, allows them to dream without limits and escape into a world of their very own for however long they wish. This is a beautiful thing and a great way to live your life.
For those of us who are not too good with the written word, there are books to be read and other hobbies to indulge in. You simply find your calling, or something you absolutely cannot get enough of doing, and you’re already there. I try to live every day as it comes by and avoid planning ahead. Mapping out your life like that is no fun at all; spontaneity is key to living life to the fullest and if you are forever prepared for every little thing that comes your way, you’re more likely to lead a dull, miserable one.
I find such joy in writing and seeing just how happy my readers are whenever they get the chance to spend some time looking over the words of my imagination. It is a hobby at the moment, but I do hope some day to share my love of writing with the world and perhaps write a few books, if not more. I’ve a handful of well known authors whom I admire and look up to often, for both inspiration and encouragement. They really do give me that much needed boost if ever I am not feeling confident enough in myself or my work. And as always, they offer the very best advice. On this blog, you will find tidbits about them, my own writing and styles and of course, reviews and opinions on more general topics.
