I’ve been struggling to write as of late. Technically, I’m still writing, but it’s been a grind.
I still love writing. Sometimes I have bad days or bad weeks though.
I’m not sure when I started writing every day. Safe to say, it’s been a long time. No, I don’t always write as much as I want to. But I never want an excuse to get in the way.
Being a writer really is like having homework every night for the rest of your life. I hope I’m still working away decades from now as an old grandma.
When I first decided to make writing a daily habit, I didn’t realize what I was signing up for. I’m only 20 years old. Assuming I live a long time, I have many days ahead of me. Which also means I’ll be writing a lot of words.
Growing up, I wrote without a care in the world. I didn’t think about anything else except putting pen to paper. I wasn’t writing to please other people. I was just having fun.
These days, I think I’ve been making the creative process a lot harder than it needs to be. I’m overthinking before I even make a mark on the page. That’s no way to write.
Here’s to letting go of all the doubts and fears. Just write. Don’t worry so much about the other stuff.
