I thought it is about time to tell you why I am actually writing and introduce my story to all.
I have only started publishing my posts recently, but the idea of becoming a writer was born in me first when I was 14 years old. I read some articles from famous writers and I thought I could do that too! I wanted to become a journalist until I am able to write my own stuff. I even got a degree in journalism, however what I learnt there was totally not related to anything I want to write about. I want to feel passionate and inspired when I write, I don’t want to feel obliged to write about topics that are uninteresting, boring or even negative to me. And you know what the media is like today… I do not wish to be part of that.
I have always loved writing, I did write my own diary about life and private events, I did write endless essays for school and university assignments. And now is the time to write about what I like and share it with others.
What makes a good writer? Inspiration and passion for writing, but I guess the first step is to start!
I wanted to start so many times before, I just could not decide what to write about and in what format, etc. Maybe my time has come now.
Also, there are the distractions. The Internet can be a major distraction these days, however it is a great source of inspiration as well. One has so many other things to do in this lifetime: jobs, studies, money, bills to pay, etc.
If I think of the great writers of the 19th century, for exmple, they did not have as many distractions as we have today: newspapers, advertisements, radio, television, internet, etc. I suppose writing was a great activity to spend time with at that time. The average length of books published from the 20th century has significantly decreased, because writers do not write as much anymore and probably readers do not read such lengthy novels either.
