Day Nine: Writing and Not Writing

When I’m not writing: 

When I’m not writing, I’m working as a Customer Assistant at my local Supermarket.

When I’m not writing, I’m reading and enjoying books and looking for material to review.

When I’m not writing, I’m watching book-tuber videos on YouTube or researching additional material on fandoms which I am apart of.

When I’m not writing, I’m listening to music and enjoying time with my family.

When I’m not writing, I’m thinking of what to write next and creating my monthly blog plans.

Day Seven: Let Social Media Inspire You

tweet

We are our biggest critics. This is something I have learned throughout the years whether it’s when writing an essay for class or a piece for my blog or just one of the little stories I make up in my head whilst bored… The difficulty of writing is something which is overlooked by many because many take it for granted. As a reader, you are presented with the final piece and whether you critique it or not that piece is never going to change. However, that is merely the process with completed works undergo… Before the piece is complete it embarks on a much more perilous journey.

As writers, we are faced with a series of difficult challenges which force us to expand our knowledge, imagination and all other boundaries which come with the act of writing. We must create something which is unique and our own, making sure not to plagiarise the works of others, whilst also making sure that our work remains something which will still appeal to the masses and/or our target audience.

And so the self-criticism begins and draft after draft of the same piece of work is created. Paper is crumpled and binned, text on screen is deleted and re-typed… The cycle is an endlessly tiresome one which leaves many wondering why they were even thinking about writing in the first place, wondering if it is worth all the stress and anxiety being put upon them as they sit there staring – yet again – at a blank sheet of paper or screen…

Yes. Yes it is. Let me tell you my own personal opinion. Many would say that perfection takes time and therefore the writings which take longer to write are better, more perfected than those written in the space of five minutes. I don’t agree. Perfection, in my opinion, does not exist…

So, readers and writers, if you find yourself in the position of thinking such a thing as mentioned on this tweet, know this… Whatever you write will be enjoyed by at least someone out there in the world and if at least one person enjoys reading it and you enjoyed writing it then it is worth it all.

And you’d be surprised at how many people want to listen.

Day Six: The Space to Write

  • What are your writing habits?
    I have a tendency to always be writing, or at least thinking about writing during the times when I can’t write. This has always been a habit of mine and that habit has only increased in frequency with this blog in production!
  • What equipment or supplies do you use to write?
    A notepad, or at least a LOT of paper, some pens and whatever else I need, this normally includes a book that I am reviewing. I also type up final drafts on my laptop or phone before posting.
  • What do you need and want in a physical space?
    I like a lot of space to write but somewhere I can be left in peace. As long as I have enough room to have all my notes and essentials sitting in front of me then I’m alright!

 

Additional Question: What would you, as the readers of my blog, like to see posted? Let me know in the comments below!

Day One: I Write Because…

Why do I write?

Why do write?

I don’t think I write for any reason different as to why others may write. I write because I love to, I write because I need to, I write because I want to.

Writing to me is as easy as breathing and in my own personal opinion – although perhaps this applies to some of you as well – writing is often easier than speaking. Whether it’s explaining something or merely wanting to let someone know of my opinion, writing it down or typing it up as I am doing now is often MUCH eaiser than having to explain it in words…

Writing comes from somewhere deep inside, a reason why I love both writing myself and reading what others have written. Words are magic and reading what others have written, for the most part, is like being allowed to see into their souls for just a brief moment because that is where writing comes from in my opinion. Writing comes from the head, heart and soul all at once and is something which I think is an act and gift that is more often than not overlooked…
