I'm Writing A Book!

Wednesday, 1 October 2014

So this isn't an announcement like 'The Pointless Book', or 'Girl Online'. Writing a  book is something I've been doing for years, it's just I find a new idea, give up, and never finish. This time I want to finish a book. I love writing, I always have. It's something that separates me from worries and the outside world.

I'm not writing this post to say the book I'm writing is a physical book that will be sold in shops and people will read it....because in all honestly it's not. I'm not the best writer, I'm not the best speller, I think I might even be slightly dyslexic. So as much I dream to have a real book, have real people buy, enjoy and read it....I know the chances are that it's not going to happen. But that's not stopping me, I don't write for the intention to make money, or be successful. I write because it's a passage to another world for me. I enjoy it, and I think that's what is important.

What do I want you to take out of this post? Well I write because I enjoy it, I'm still writing even though I know nothing may come out of it. I feel excitement before I got to bed as I think of the next chapter in my characters life. It's something that makes me happy, and finding that thing is incredibly important. I want you to find what makes you happy, and do it. Even if you think you're not good at it, or you don't think you have a chance at doing it for a job, still keep doing it. It's important to work out why you want to do something. If you want to be an actor...why? To be famous or because you love acting? Because keep acting, go to school plays, get involved in workshops- don't let the idea of unlikely careers stop you from doing what you love.

I've been asked many times why I write? No one really takes my writing seriously, but I think its the most beautiful thing...from tiny ideas in your head, into creating a life on paper. I want you to find the thing you love, and keep doing it. Keep being happy!

Speak soon guys

  1. This is honestly how I feel most of the time! I LOVE to write, and I know it probably won't turn into a career, but who cares! I wish you all the luck in your book. x

  4. I love writing, but I do tend to have problems with commitment when I write because I get insecure.

  5. This post is just amazing. I used to write a lot (and never finish what I started), and lately I don't have that much time anymore. Reading how you feel while writing stories, just made me think about how I used to feel.. and I miss that excitement! I need to go back and start writing again (I mean, other than blogging). Maybe now that I'm also older I will finally be able to produce something from start to end.
    Thank you for sharing with us your words!
