So writers write, right?
I really and truly do not want to prove the commenter correct who said that she felt sorry for new writers who get all excited about writing but usually end up with nothing because it is so hard to do!
This summer with tons of free time, I was strongly inspired with a great writing idea and plan. But now that my new school job has begun, I have written very little in the past two weeks.
I am creatively and physically exhausted at the end of each day, and the weekends are full of doing the cleaning that could not be done earlier.
I am not making excuses.
Where did all my creativity go?
I still have the book plan in writing. I still have the desire. I still believe that I can be a freelance writer.
And I definitely still need the $$ a LOT!
Maybe that is what has changed. The need for additional income inspired me to try again, but it also is taking some of the FUN out of the process.
Pressure can KILL creativity.
But pressure can also SPARK creativity!
Maybe I get to choose?! (Don't mind me, I am thinking aloud here a bit.) Hmm.
If I get to choose, than I clearly choose that the pressure will cause me to find a way.
I will find a way to fan the flame of creativity that is in me.
I choose not to let my two writing rejections stop me from submitting more articles to more places.
I did not fail. I did the first step in my writing plan. It was to begin a new blog and I DID that! I didn't fail.
I just got a bit tired. But that is normal at the beginning of every school year. The rhythm will come back.
I can do this. I am 55 years old, the waiting for maturity is pretty much over! If I am not mature yet....well then we are in trouble!
I want to be paid to write. Someone out there wants to pay me to write.
Here I am.
