Writing and Me

 

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.

 

If your dreams don’t scare you, they are not big enough!

 

Dare to dream big! What happens in the worst case? You might not achieve all your dreams, but in the end you can say that you HAVE achieved some!

“Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss it, you will land among the stars.”
(Les Brown)

People tend to get so stuck in the everyday routine of work and life that they forget about the dreams they had as a child, as a teenager or as a young adult. I believe people could be much happier if they were encouraged since childhood and in school to follow their dreams, their passions and to expand their talents.

“You’ve got to follow your passion. You’ve got to figure out what it is you love – who you really are. And have the courage to do that. I believe that the only courage anybody ever needs is the courage to follow their own dreams.” (Oprah Winfrey)

I know it is not easy, especially for people who live with financial difficulties, but I believe that a person with genuine passion for something CAN achieve what he/she wants. What happens in most cases is that our schools do not support us in expanding our talents (of course, there are exceptions) and our own family and closest environment do not support us in following our passions either. They are often too much caught up with the everyday stress of work (that they hate) and the boring routine of life.

So dare to dream big and be creative! It doesn’t matter if it all seems unrealistic at this point in your life. If you don’t dare to dream, it is guaranteed that you are not going to achieve any of them. If you dare to dream, one day you’ll find that you are living the life you have once dreamed of!
