writin and shiiiiit

i feel in my gut that i should be an author, i get so many ideas for books and potential excerpts constantly run through my mind. i'm just so scared that i'll fail that i haven't even started any of these books. i'm only 18 but i know that people would like to hear what i have to say, that they would identify with me and find solice in my words.

  • Just. F******. Write.

    Write it all. Get it down. Most of it will stay bits and pieces, some of it will turn into something great. Just keep writing. Even when you don't want to. Make it a habit. Even if you think it sucks, just keep writing god dammit. That's the only way to get better. It's like anything else. It takes hard work and determination and commitment.

    Lastly, I'll leave you with a related quote from my creative writing teacher I had once: "To be a serious writer, you have to be a serious reader."

  • interesting phrase i once heard..
    maybe you're not afraid to fail...
    maybe you're afraid to succeed
