Writing Isn't Easy

Thinking of ideas is fluid. I always have ideas. I write some down and others I release back into the universe for others to grab. Realizing those aren’t my stories to write.

The last couple of weeks I’ve been preparing myself to be a serious writer. LOL One would think I was already serious since I have four works already written and published. What I mean by serious is not taking years upon years to get each of my works published. Serious by writing EVERYDAY and making progress on works I have started years prior. Because right now these stories are waiting to be written and inside of me they are screaming to come out.

As an INTJ, I’m into process. Perfecting the process. I just think I haven’t been able to commit to the process I’ve constructed because I’m mentally drained. Physically tired on most days and knowing writing is a mentally and emotionally draining process, I can’t seem to make it happen any quicker than I do. I’m hoping through this new process I’ve set up and I can stick to it and be more productive.

Lately, I’ve been watching a lot of videos on YouTube from writers. I’m not in this struggle alone. Their videos are reassuring to me. I feel like we’re all in this together; wanting to bring a variety of stories to the masses.

I’ve finally come back to my blog. This is a part of my being more productive in writing process. I use to think in order for me to write something on my blog, it had to be poignant. As if it had to be something of significance. But what I realized is that doesn’t matter. I just need write whatever is on my mind and stop thinking about what I think people what to hear from me. People will let me know in the comments section if they want to know about a particular topic, of which I rarely get comments anyway…so I’m good!
