No one will ever see you the way a writer will.
Choosing to follow the creative path is not for the weak of heart. People who prefer a linear life should steer clear of making a living through words.
Yes, this is really my job. And yes, I get paid for it.
We’re tired of people who use the work we’re not proud of to judge us.
I was able to get a chance to know what I love to do, what moves me, and I don’t want to waste that. Not everybody gets the chance to know their calling.
If you have no idea what it means, you’re not the only one.
It’s funny how I can write 140-character quips all day and not get any ideas for something career-changing. I rushed my workload just to get a long writing break and all I did was play Candy Crush and binge-watch some shows. And they say being a freelance writer is easy.
They told me it was a hobby, not a job. That I’d never get paid for writing. That I should go back and get a proper job with a pension plan and dental and stop trying to get paid for something I enjoyed doing.
It makes you feel better and you feel good sharing your thoughts. If it is making you feel more upset or making you think about the person more, then do not cause yourself the extra pain.
You don’t choose the love of writing, love of writing chooses you.
