My thoughts on writing
Without writing, I have to say that I would not be happy doing anything else other then living the dream of dreams. My thoughts become real when I write. It’s like my mind has its own world that I can explore at any time.
They say life is like an open book with many pages that we must fill out on the many roads of life. We travel the world to fill out the pages that are left blank, for our life stories can be full of wonder for the people next in line to read them.
When you think about it, we are each living a dream that we wrote so very long ago. I remember being a little boy dreaming of that fast car that I’d have when I got older. I may not be at that point yet, but it’s that dream, that glimmer of hope that makes our dreams come true for us.
Writing is not just a job I wish I could do for the rest of my life. It’s also where my heart is laid to rest. It is where my train of thought runs wild and free.
Through the eyes of a struggling writer
I have been writing since I was very young, anything from a story right to a loving and heart-filled poem.
Whateve r is on my mind can become something great if I put my mind to it.
When I start writing a story it’s like my train of thought can be endless.
I happen to love writing a good fantasy story involving knights going on a quest to save his kingdom, or even a story about the future and high tech weaponry.
I have so many thoughts that I try my best to work with when it comes to the story that I’m involved with at that very moment in time.
If I’m writing a story based on a kingdom, I try to write all the bass lines first. Meaning I’ll say where the kingdom is, what the land is like, is it run by a noble leader or is it all based on how democrats have taken over the kingdoms wealth and ways-of-life.
Most ideas don’t seem to always work out right away, but it does take time for each of my ideas for a story to work its way onto the page.
It all takes time, even though it’s time you wish would hurry and end. But all in good time, things will be fine.
You may be wondering why I wish to take the career path of being a writer; well it’s simple. I wish to do something I happen to already enjoy very much.
It takes time to truly know what you want to do for the rest of your life; you may find yourself walking down many roads until you find that one thing you enjoy.
Will there be some sort of pressure in trying to become a writer? Sure there will be, but what career choice doesn’t have a struggle you must face.
Coming up with new ideas can be the worst struggle of all. You find yourself at the end of your chair, biting your nails and thinking to yourself, why can’t I think of anything?
It all takes time for a new idea to jump from your head to the paper, with new ideas you can improve something already written, or even add something new to the plot of the story that you find yourself writing.
A great man once said: “ Hide not your talents. They for use were made. What’s a sundial in the shade?” That man was Benjamin Franklin. Benjamin Franklin made a good point when he said this; it goes to show that even one idea can become something great.
Our talents really show who we are. Struggles are just areas where we each can improve something about us and something we may or may not be good at.
Keep in mind the words Benjamin Franklin said, keep them close to heart, because you can do anything.
