I was asked an insightful question by Susi during the blog party: how long have you been writing and what drives you?
I figured I’d write a post for all the writers out there. Being a blogger, a poet, an author or a novelist is not anything to be ashamed of. It is not uncool. It is a way of life. There will be hurdles. My first attempt wasn’t all that pretty and neither was my second. You just have to keep trying till you’re passionate enough to let go of what’s stopping your spirits.
I’ve been writing for about a year but I began this journey when I was 10 years old. I started writing my first novel. The book got damaged while shifting. My amateur mind thought that keeping it inside a folder would protect it from dampness☺️
Anyways, that was my first experience. I’ve always attempted short stories in the English paper and I’ve written nearly 30 to 40 stories so far. My first hand at poetry was in 8th grade for the school magazine. And guess what it was about. Chocolates! Can you believe my first poem was about chocolates!?
I’ve not really published my work publicly until one year back in the college newsletter. Then, last year in March, I began my journey on WordPress. I have had many failed attempts but I’m happy that I’m getting to meet new people and make new friends.
Ever since I haven’t stopped. I’ve tried but it’s just not possible. I’m addicted. Addicted to the flawless beauty of art. It’s true. When I don’t post for a month I start having nightmares.
Always remember, nothing is a waste. All our humiliations, embarrassments and hurtful moments will help us shape our art. Tell me the name of one successful person in the field of writing and poetry who hasn’t been stabbed by the realities of life. I dare you, my friends😏
Love you all! And I hope this post helps you.
Lots of love and hugs!❤️
Thank you for reading:)
