Fellow Writers

Just so you know, that should be banana bread but if you like raisin bread, then that’s cool too. 🙂

We, as writers, share our feelings and emotions through words. Many let their frustrations out, while some are beautifully artistic and some are all over the road. We express ourselves this way simply because not a lot of people understand who we are as a person. Not many would grasp the concept of what our interests are or what we fear the most.

Take your time answering the following questions (to yourself of course, as to stay comfortable from the world knowing):

Did you ever imagine yourself writing the way you do?

What inspires you to write? (Again, just who you are as a person)

Does writing help combat loneliness? 

Have you thought about what people may think of you as a person from what you write about?

Regardless of how you answered, I admire you. I admire the courage you have to express yourselves! There are topics I have yet to encounter or interpret myself the way others do. So for that, keep writing!

On GNJ, I have read many entries and man….all of them are beautifully written. This is my 11th entry but it’s not my first time writing. It’s just my first time letting others read my thoughts, feelings, and emotions. We consider ourselves introverts but the way “You” write, you mesmerize me with the emotions that can be captured and strung together. Yes, I am talking about you.

If you feel you aren’t good enough to write, keep this in mind. I love the entries put on here. Why feel intimidated by what others may perceive? Another thing to share with you, a saying that has helped me stay in writing for such a long time:

“We are the manipulator of words. We are the few who can imagine and interpret our thoughts and emotions that color this bland world”.

You don’t know me and I don’t know you. We do, however, share this dying art and hopefully someday we can call each other a friend or colleague. So, take great care my friend and may the day be yours!

🙂

  1. Did you ever imagine yourself writing the way you do? ●Yes, but in retrospect I thought I’d be a more accomplished writer by this point in my life. My favorite toy growing up was an old fashioned type writer. I’d write story after story. Eventually I began the process of being overly critical of myself and the promise of being a great writer unraveled.

    What inspires you to write? (Again, just who you are as a person)●The world as I perceive it inspires me. I lack artistic talent. Writing is a better medium for me.

    Does writing help combat loneliness? ●No, but I am never lonely.

    Have you thought about what people may think of you as a person from what you write about?●I don’t concern myself with how others see me. I gave up on control and judgement long ago. What you think of me isn’t as important to me as how I view myself. It’s not vanity or selfishness. It’s simple a oneness and peacefulness.

    I liked your questions. Thanks.

  2. I liked your questions, too. I write because things just come to my mind. My two novels started out as short stories. Yes, I worry a lot about what people will think of me, especially my family. My 92 year old mom. In one story some guys are smoking pot. My mother asked me, how do you know about these things? Well, NOT from firsthand experience. I listen to people talk. I pay attention.
    Thank you for the thought provoking questions and your excellent essay on writing.
