As a writer I do believe in magic. But that may just be my medication (No… Stop laughing, I am on medication.) But I ultimately love what words do for me and also what they can do for you. They can have you dreaming about one itsy-bitsy scene for hours or have you turn the pages because you can’t read anymore gore… Yuck!
But it is our job, no wait, our RIGHT to explore the recesses of our dark abysses and pluck the words out and form them into entertainment. Now I have been writing for about ten years, now I am back in the asylum (I’m getting off topic.) But I have seen wonders in words that deliver me to another world; I have seen the littlest piece of fiction woven into a work of a triumphant masterpiece and seen people start-up a blog and write a piece of fiction that one but me loves…. I read anything and everything, my curse I call it.
But we as writers are the creators, some better than others, I am sorry but that is life. Either you have it or you don’t; but don’t stop there “Someday” is within your cards, kid.
I am a different writer from you all; neither money nor fame keeps me coming back for more; only the mere thrill of shockvalue does it for me. (Better than sex…. well almost better.) But I would like to tell you a saying my mother always told me when I strived for greatness….. Are you ready?
What is not for you will not go by you.
Simple…. If this is the path you have chosen (Well-Done, Kid!) carry on, there are only two possibilities; either you make it or you don’t; but no one can say you didn’t try. Now I am here to say I HAVE GOT YOUR BACKS! I will try my hardest to help you before I help myself, another curse of mine…. (I’m thinking I have a voodoo doll somewhere.) But PLEASE don’t lay your pen down just yet. All it takes is for one literary agent to see your work and to put you on the top of that list and snatch you from reality and tell you to live, breath and write… Whatever it is you write.
Now if you are a real writer, you are very sceptical about your own words… DON’T BE! Forget what people say or read. You are a writer, you don’t have to read what they say if it is anything negative.
And don’t be a fool and quit. Look at me, I am 25 years young, I have dreams of becoming a writer and no one really knows who I am by name or face only by certain songs and articles I have written and into the bargain I am a mental patient (Non-Practising) but I have a knack or a fire to force my will to breakdown the writers-blocked wall, crumble it and from the mortar make my own world. That’s what makes me a writer. Keep going your story doesn’t end here.
Now I know we are vast, but numbers will dwindle (They always do.) And the only people left standing or writing will be me and you.
This has been a psychotic announcement to sane people worldwide.
Keep your pens busy….
