It’s hard this writing thing. Hard to know what to write. Hard to come up with something to write. And hard to know if anyone cares what you are writing.
I read Michelle’s slice from the Literacy Zone and I see that she too is struggling with the words to harvest day after day.
I better understand after just a few years of doing this how hard it is to put in the effort day after day, and I am in awe of those that do it for a living.
My brother has a friend who is a writer. You may have heard of him Craig Johnson. He writes the Longmire stories, the ones that the Longmire series is based on- on A and E.
My brother asked him once how he became a writer. He told him it’s all he does. He has quit his day job, and just- writes.
It’s a scary thought giving up all you have just for the joy of writing. How do you pay the bills? What if no one likes what you write? What if you never publish anything you write….what if you fail.
I think that is my struggle down deep, not having the words to write, but instead what if nobody likes, comments, reads what it is I have written. What if I fail.
