A Writer's Struggles

Updated on May 9, 2016

 Some days you just want to give up. Give up on your hopes your dreams. Your voice that is otherwise shut under a lock and key. With your words you can speak loud and shout. You can touch a soul that is perhaps kindred to your own. With your words you can save a life or cause a fight, make someone love or make someone appalled. You ask yourself why do you write. Why do I write? I pause in this…I write therefore I am. I write because it’s a passion, I write to be heard and to share. I hope to move and touch a soul with my words and my thoughts. In a world where words were meant to crush me I want to write words that can be true and uplifting. I want to write truth in all its bitterness. I want to write to open eyes and make people think again. People have a vanity with their rose colored glasses that everything is black and white and there are no other answers. Really now? I want to make you think, to be of open mindedness.

All in all I will get no where then. For writing is a harsh business. I’m too unique and eccentric. I dare to be difference and people don’t like difference. I am not too sure on how long I should wait or should I just publish myself. Is there a part in the writing world for me? Will I amount to anything? Amount to anything before I put us all in poverty. A single mom with nothing but a dream. I am no JK Rowling nor do I want to be. I just want a book out that people will enjoy and like to read. Id settle for an underground cult following. Keep dreaming the dream illusion of dream that I will make it as anything. But my flicker will not die the fire wont go out. You shoot me down you think I’m dead, yet I get back up I hold my wound and look at you wondering why? Why did you shoot me with those words? Why do you hate me? What did I do? Are you jealous do you want to do what I do? For no words of hostility should be uttered just for a girl and her dream. I have gotten praised by my writing teacher he convinced me I have some talent in me. The hurt turns to anger and fuels my fire and I only come back stronger and with more power. I wonder how many times it will take to shoot me down to and face reality. But like a phoenix from the ashes I rise again brand new. Only to get shot down again and come back. Am I a fool? No I am a writer.

      Quill here have so much good things to say for everyone. JannyC, gosh you write good ! :D. What can I say. I agree with you though that there are moments in time that nothing comes out of us even if we want to write. I have read in some of those inspiratinal books that we just have to sit, write anything until the muse surprises us. More power to you dear.

      Hi Janny:

      You are a writer and you have a profound message that touches the soul whom reads and allows the words you write to settle into their spirt.

      It is hard to please each person, everyone is different the key is to write from deep within, those who fail to see the writer through what is before them fail to see the treasure you produce.

      Keep writing girl...keep writing and I remain in prayer that God opens doors for you.

      Many Blessings
