Alex J. Cavanaugh, I've participated in every posting of IWSG. I'm still trying to figure out if that's good or bad. Obviously, I'm insecure and a writer, but am I really super insecure? Like over the top? Maybe and maybe not. We all have some insecurities. It can be as small as not liking your big toe. My thing is I express myself best when I write so hence lots of posts on my feelings while riding on the tracks of this crazy journey.
Writing isn't easy, especially if you want to be published. When people ask if it's lonely, I simply answer it can be. At times, yes, it is, but I think I tend to make it that way (over thinking). There are so many people who have hopped in the seat next to me, to give support, encouragement, or just to talk. All of it has given me a warm fuzzy feeling in my heart and brings a smile to my face. So many people put up with my whining (which I plan to slow it down a bit, I know I've said that before), I'm still astonished they still listen. I write on emotion, so I'm trying to keep some things to me only so no one else has to suffer.
The thing is--I know that I've finally found my passion. Yes, I've said this before, but after everything I've learned and as I work my way through the trenches of querying, I still want to keep going. Writing is something I can never let go. I can't stop creating stories or characters. Plus, if I keep talking to myself with no reason why, I may be heading to the psych ward.
So thank you writers and bloggy friends for all you do. Writing has taught me many things, not only about writing, but about who I am and how wonderful people (real people) can be.
What have you learned on your journey?
