Hey its been awhile and no I haven’t forgotten about you!
Now, I know I am not the best writer in the world, I like to write and recently had taken a long break from writing. I mean, when I had to do papers for school of course I completed those. I am talking about the type of writing that lets my imagination fly. Creative writing that I just let flow from all the crazy things I think about while listening to my favorite song or composition on repeat (Usually one by Muse). I finally took some time from my crazy college student life to take a look at some things I had written a few years ago. It made me sad to think it had been two years since I had taken the time to work on and improve my ideas.
Recently I was sifting through my many documents and came across a couple of ideas I had once worked on. They were what you would expect to find when stumbling on some old documents (ok I was deleting some of the old documents in preparation of transferring them to my new computer since this one is currently dying 😦 ) a few errors, some cheesy lines said by a few of my characters, and a plot that wasn’t making sense. Other than that, I was pleasantly surprised how familiar these characters still felt and how compelled I am to tell their story. Within 5 minutes my intrigue in how to tell their story was reignited.
One problem with this is I am in one of my busiest semesters at college and wonder where I am going to find the time to tell their story. At the same time a Ted Talk I watched for one of my classes comes looming into my mind. The speaker, (I can‘t remember his name right now sorry!) mentioned if you have a goal or a dream you don’t put it aside, you simply put in the effort to make it happen, even if that means after all the work put in during the day, you sit down at midnight (or later) to begin working on something you are passionate about. I also think this means I will be feeding my coffee addiction just a little more.
Thanks for reading! Until next time!
