We don’t always write about the people who flatter themselves thinking we do. We don’t always shine a spotlight on every story.
Being a Writer
Just like sex sells, so do tabloids and sadly, the written word is becoming less “written” and more clickbait.
They are in relationships with the most sensitive, emotional, and passionate people out there.
I’m sorry, I’m really not sorry. You can tell me I’m a psycho person still in love with my first love, or that I’m a terrible person for writing about an experience I had, but look, this is my passion as well as the way I make my money. I don’t give a shit what you think.
Greatness doesn’t come from a single great idea or Eureka moment. It comes from painstakingly borrowing other people’s work and building on it. We steal our way to greatness.
Because today, in this era, having too much in your plate is quite consuming. That consumes your own sanity, your own self-trust, and your own free will.
Doing something you “love” doesn’t mean you’ll love it all the time.
I mean, they say that we are all just stories in the end, after all. Right?
Most people do not want to be professional writers. They like the idea of being able to “do what they love,” and then when they have to write 5 articles a day on top of manuscripts and other projects, they suddenly don’t love it so much anymore.
You don’t choose the love of writing, love of writing chooses you.
