A Few Days’ Thoughts on Writing: Day Five
Here is the conclusion to this weeks’ posts. And some advice that you can be sure I am giving to myself also!
For those of you who want to make a living at writing, set small goals, reach them, and set some more. I didn’t do that. I’ve never been very good at setting goals and working towards them until I’ve reached them. I get distracted very easily, because I have so many interests that I can only focus on one for so long before I get bored. Actually, that’s not entirely true. Painting has been the one interest that has remained a constant for the last ten years. I have always admired people who know that one thing they want to do, work towards it, and achieve it in the area of a vocation. But I kept finding new things to be interested in along the way, so I never did that. That’s my life, though. That doesn’t have to be true for you. If you are meant to be a great writer, or artist or musician, you will be! Just work hard and keep on going. Keep challenging yourself. And most important of all, NEVER GIVE UP ON YOUR DREAMS.!!
In closing, I want to say I hope you enjoyed my thoughts as much as I enjoyed writing them. Thanks so much for reading and for all of your comments.
And in case you haven’t seen it, check out the piece I wrote on Creativity and Depression. I am interested in feedback on this especially from fellow artists and writers. Thanks.
Until next time, God bless you, have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug.
