I think that anyone who loves to read has thought of what they think is a gold mine idea. For me, I’ve had a few. The question is, will I write?
The honest answer is I hope so. Maybe not today and maybe not tomorrow, but hopefully one day. But I’ll let you in on a secret: I have literally no idea what I am doing.
While I have a few ideas, based on some pretty intense dreams, I am so incredibly out of my league when it comes to putting pen to paper. In a lot of ways, I hope that by posting to this blog, I will start to feel more comfortable by the way I write and will start writing more.
Ever since I was a little kid, I have always been able to spout out mathematical equations, but failed to say my thoughts in words. I have always come up with insane stories (flashback to 3rd grade me who wrote the “true story” of how my dad had a robot twin who was also a baseball pro, I got an F on that assignment), I just never felt encouraged to really use them. The only time I use the made up stories in my head now is in lies, and boy, am I good at that. Does that make me a bad person? Oh well!
While everyone talks about writer’s block, I feel so inundated (see I paid attention during English class) with every single thing that goes on in my head. But as a snob, I truly want to produce something of great value.
Who knows? Maybe in a while I will be someone you see on the New York Times Bestseller chart. Until then, you are stuck with me here.
If you have any thoughts or ideas about how I should get into the habit of writing, feel free to let me know in the comments below. Or, if you would like to talk to me through e-mail, reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org. Until then, as always, I’ll see you at the next book!
