Quote: Desire to Write Grows…

 

I love this quote because I believe it is true. When I first began to get into writing was around 14 years of age. I hated anything to do with English at that time, because schools just don’t know how to get kids engaged in regards to language studies…

Anyway that’s another rant for another time.

At first when I started writing I found it a chore, but as I continued on my mission to – at the time – make the best book ever, my desire to write grew. Soon I found myself writing every day – morning, afternoon, evening and even sometimes through the night. As I continued to write so did this strange need or desire to write.

Now, I’m twenty-four years old and can’t go a day without writing. It is my release, my passion and my therapy. All my emotions and creative ideas grow in my garden that is made up of Word Docs or notebooks.

That is another reason I have this blog. To give me a way to write, and let out what I am thinking to the world while keeping my mind busy with expression and creative thought. I get to meet like-minded people and gods it is awesome when I talk with some of you because then I know I am not alone in the world feeling this way.

Writing has grown into a passion for me when I never thought it would when I was younger, because I did at first force myself to write.

Don’t give up and keep trucking through. You’ll find your passion for something if you stick with it.

Quote: Writers were born

The same thing can be said for writing. Writing is meant to be real. Real in the meaning of your feelings and thoughts are truly your creative expression on the page – not real as in based in reality. Everyone knows that writers are crazy and therefore don’t know what reality is (just kidding). Writers take things from our lives and explore all kinds of possibilities in a safe world we have built, but it is not the real world.

We as writers are meant to be true to our thoughts, and trust in our emotions to guide us to creating a piece that moves. Writers push the boundaries and write on topics that scare or bother people. We ask questions no one wants to, and we are also the one’s to find the answers to those questions. We aren’t afraid to explore the possible and even the impossible. Yet, we fear perfection.

We don’t fear it in the way we don’t want it, but in the fact we strive so hard for it. Sometimes writers strive so hard to reach perfection that they never finish their piece and never feel the confidence to publish.

Writers aren’t meant to be perfect.

Sure our grammar should we better than most, and our sentences should have better structure; but that is just the basics. It’s the stories we want to write and the characters we develop, or the description of a location, or emotion in a poem we want to get perfect. We want to reach that perfection, not for us to be happy, but for our possible readers to be.

Writers, though, aren’t meant to be perfect.

If our writing was perfect, no one would create new words or create strange phrases that people repeat in public. If our writing was perfect, there wouldn’t be any discussions on what was wrong with the book and learning from our mistakes…

Writers are not meant to be perfect!

Anyone can be a writer, which makes writing such an amazing thing. Billions of untold stories inside everyone, and yet the majority won’t be told because they fear rejection, which in turn plays into the desire for perfection.

It is sad if you think about it.

That’s why, from this moment on, I am going to have this posted on my inspiration wall. Whenever I feel like I need to strive for perfection, this will be my reminder:

writers

Perfect writing isn’t always good writing; it is the raw emotional and imperfect pieces that can make it real.

Character Question: Your character in one sentence

one sentence

I love this questions because it makes you look at your characters and try to think of their complexity in a simple way. Most times you can go on and on about your characters as if they are your best friend. After all you know everything there is to know about them, you created them. Sometimes, though, it is harder to simplify a complicated character into one sentence.

To show you I just didn’t make this for you to do, I willing made a list of sentences each describing my characters from P6’s first book. 😛

Enjoy.

Caldor is use to a particular lifestyle, but isn’t afraid of being outside his comfort zone.

Foe is a family man, and the most loyal friend anyone could ask for.

Liora is young but has potential to change the world.

Charn is a good father, although his harshness towards others doesn’t make you think so.

Pellar is best described as over-dramatic.

Talia is an opportunist.

Bruce can’t make his own choices and therefore is usually told what to do.

Marcia tries her best to balance both work and home.

Druce is a happy child and his eyes shine with intelligence.

Vesper is a gryphon… she does bird lion things… (Best description ever!)
