Lack of Energy
When I first joined hubpages I tried to outsmart the big guys up top. Thought what I was doing was giving them something creative and unique when really I was being Lazy. Posting videos and pics but had little writing. As the years went by, that is how it has been. I loved to write but I became lazy in doing it. I hated to sit in front of a computer looking at a screen with a bunch of words on it. I wanted the career given to me without it being earned. My passion I prolonged.
Since I joined hubpages I am finding myself doing what I hated to do. I HATED TO TYPE. Even tho I work I am more eager to do it than I used to be. Now I am up early mornings and late nights typing articles like I used to. That passion I thought that left me was back. The challenges I faced were moving fast. Eager to pick up where I left off. I had too much pride to start fresh but I had to humble myself and do it. Hate typing but for my career in writing I am now learning to love it.
Writers block is what every writer goes through. Sometimes you feel it and there are times that you don't. That's just the truth but I do not feel that is my problem. I feel that my problem is focus and sleep at night. When I was younger I did this with ease. My mind was somewhat fresh enough to take those risks but now at 33 years old it is not. Rest is very important when it comes to writing anything. I understand time is money and people just love the money but rest is valuable. Not only for writing but for anything you do. You can think better when you have a rested brain. That is surely one of the major problems I have.
Full-time or Part Time
Being a writer takes a lot of your time that is a reason I stopped . Now back into it again I am faced with a decision. Faced to choose do I want it Part time or full-time? Believe it or not every writer is faced with that. I have a good job but I love writing. Now in a rock and a hard place. Makes me think of why I did not take advantage when I was unemployed. Not hard on myself about it but will be lying if I said I don't think of it.
The fact that I should have been pursued a career in this field drives me to do it now. It is never too late. Yes I have a job but the time will come when I must do this full-time and dedicate more into it. Some challenges came that I took pride taking on and do not regret it at this moment. The same I will advise others. Do not give up early or late. I see articles written by older people on here and say THAT IS WHAT YOU CALL PASSION
