The Great Escape

August 19, 2012

Writing is an outlet. Writing is proving I can produce and not just absorb story. Sitting on my backside reading book after book is not developing my intellect, even if it is lusciously delicious. Writing forces me to think, plan, maneuver, reflect, and if nothing else, use correct spelling and grammar.

Hurray for writing.

Writing is an escape. Writing is refusing to quit, refusing to admit that the chances of someone buying your story are slim to none. Zombied out watching America’s Got Talent is not strengthening my character or improving my discipline. Writing forces me to throw myself into the great miasma of artists and plebes who hope to be heard, and who think their voice is worth hearing.

Hurray for writing.

    Absolutely! It’s hard, but we know that already, right? This is me merely kicking myself in the pants. Hang in there.

    I agree. Writing for me…just is. It’s a part of who I am, who I was and who I will always be. If I’m not writing, I’m not truly happy.
