Today’s question, “Are you making too much of Writing?” Is one that I ask myself all the time. This writing prompt came to mind after reading this article and the proceeding comments that followed what was said. But what I wanted to share today is this quote: “’What does it take to be a writer?’ He said, ‘Being a writer, is I think, 90% psychology and 10% everything else.’” from a previous post I’d made. These psychological barriers that we’ve placed in our minds play havoc with our ability to just let go and Express Yourself with your words in writing. This is one of the reasons I’ve chosen this blog theme of Writing just to Write because I’m always making a big deal about writing a few words each day.
There is a realization of one’s own ability as we write: Facing the fact that, this is who we are, which can be devastating to our egos. Getting over this barrier in our minds can be a very difficult thing to do…I struggle quite frequently with the thought Who wants to read this! but evidently I do because I’m writing it. But you get the idea of what I’m saying, Right?
I’m a relatively new blogger here in WordPress, but I’ve been trying to post or to write something every day now consecutively; today marks my 1533rd day. Not that I’ve contributed anything to the literary world with what I write about. But just for the simple fact that I’m learning how to write by writing. Trying to Enjoy Life each day by sharing what’s on my mind with the words on the page.
Thanks for Listening,
