Once many many years back when I was 11 and was sitting scribbling in my notebook, I stopped to realize how much I loved the sound of pencil on paper. Soon enough I also happened to realize that I loved reading. Now that was reading my school books or story books I just loved to read it, to turn the pages, to hold the book…
As I grew up, I quietly kept these thoughts in a very small corner of my heart and moved on to getting my “qualification” so I could make a decent career – that would pay me.
The love for the sound of pencils had transformed into the love for clicking sound of the keys on my laptop. Also, the fonts were better than my handwriting.
It’s not easy when you grow up and realize that your dream is not just your dream. There are many who dream about the same things. I wasn’t the only one who loved to write or loved to read. There were plenty around me & way ahead of me. Who could speak better, write better & who used to read a lot.
During times like these you’d want to quit and follow a routine that would fulfil your regular needs. But to be honest, this is not your low point. This is the point when you need to hold onto your dream harder because this is where it will pick up from.
Remember, if many others can share your dreams, they can share your fears and insecurities as well.
“When asked, ‘How do you write?’ I invariably answer, ‘one word at a time.’ – Stephen King.
This is close to what I thought when I started to write with the intention of taking it to what we call now days – the next level. I really did not know what the next level is, I still don’t know. I just know that I write and people like to read. I write every single day. I write about what comes to my mind, what I hate, what I like, what I think, my point of view, my point of view on other people’s point of view, what I find funny, what I find annoying, how the world should think, what all I appreciate and there is no end.
I just write.
Because, that’s what makes me happy. That’s what makes a lot of people happy. And that is also what pays.
If you ever think that it’s not easy to make a living out of writing, then those wonderful odd days are gone. If you’re an aspiring writer, you’re in the best time ever. You’re not living in the times where you need to get a book published to make people read your thoughts. No. If your book is not happening now, you have the internet!
Yes of course you must write something that’s interesting and won’t bore anybody to shut away. But that’s in your hands and you can control it. And every writer is a good writer. They just need their audience. Find yours!
