Writing is hard.
It’s having a mix of personalities fighting in your head for your attention. It’s hearing voices in the middle of the night feeding you ideas. It’s rewriting a scene fifty times because there is something about it that just doesn’t sound/feel right.
Writing is editing. Writing is editing everything over and over again. Writing is editing every little word, sentence, punctuation. Writing is editing your story to make sure it makes sense, it flows, the characters work, there’s enough description… enough emotion… enough connection… enough story……… *eye twitch*
Did I mention writing is editing…?
Writing is a passion that can put you into the happiest mood one moment to the saddest mood the next. It’s creating pain, feeling pain, and learning how to overcome that pain. Is creating the adventure, going on that adventure, and seeing it to its conclusion.
Writing is insanity with all the ups and downs. The places you imagine in your mind that feel so real to you, more-so sometimes than actual reality.
Writing is an escape from life, from the world.
Writing is life.
Writing will make you hate ever picking up a pen and starting the journey but once you’re done… there is no word to describe how incredible it feels.
Yes, writing is hard but the best things in life usually are. 🙂
