Diary of a Writer

Updated: Jan 7, 2020

Writer's Diary #1

When I began this writing journey 4 yrs ago. I thought to myself it would be a piece of cake. Writing is like breathing. Its just something we all do. Yep. My stupidity and arrogance most certainly were rearing its ugly head.

I’ve learned after years of trying and failing and trying again, that the experiences of sitting at your desk and bleeding from your soul as you write has a lot to do with why I haven’t completed any of my own works as of yet. It’s a journey I’m on. I’m learning to share myself and my truth with others within the pages of my stories; the things I love and the things I hate. It’s truly a love/hate relationship I have with the characters I created. It’s not a passive or lukewarm emotion I feel toward them. Its extremely personal and intimate.

Truthfully speaking? Every writer places pieces of themselves in everything they write. Between the lines of a story the writer is revealing themselves. Peeking out. Within the characters, a speck of the heart and soul of that writer is revealed. I think most great writers have incredible insight to see or know such a profound truth about themselves and others.

Perhaps one day I’ll be one of them.
