Writing? What a hassle!

Writing Hassle

It’s difficult writing. I don’t know if I’m complaining or ranting. Maybe I’m doing both. I have the plot, I have the points, but writing it, has become a problem. It’s like having all the ingredients, you even know the order, but still you can’t comprehend how it’s going to become that perfect cake, you see in your head. You aim to become a writer who can compete with the best, or even better than your favourite author, but everything seems out of your league. Even starting the first sentence is a struggle. What speaking voice should I use? How deep should I go into detail? Have I missed any key points? It doesn’t matter if you read up advice, on how to improve or research skills, on how to make your writing flow, because you’ve already done it, but the keyboard isn’t producing all that reading. The pen isn’t even producing ink.
Nonetheless, don’t waste your time moaning like me. Keep writing because you enjoy it. Keep writing because one day you will polish up that dreadful story that you first created, into something that will make you smile. As for me, I’m going to clean, revise my pharmaceutical knowledge and maybe later on in the evening, I’ll begin this journey once more.

  1. I remember something I read in Anne Lamott’s Bird by Bird. Even when frustrated or tired or plain old out-of-ideas, she said that if she sat there (at the computer or desk) long enough, something would happen.

    • ❤ Thank you! I feel like I've read this somewhere.
      I will be spending more time writing, or at least re-reading what I have written before.
      Don't you feel like sometimes you waste time on'researching' about writing? I'm very guilty of doing this.

  2. Yes – just write, write, and write some more. Fly by the seat of your pants. In all that sludge, a gem will appear. You may throw out 70% of your first attempts. If you force it to be polished and great – it will read forced.

    I am a former writer who stopped writing due to the negative voices in my head. Don’t do what I did.

    Good luck!

    • Thank you so much Jenna 😀 I completely agree.
      I decided that I would start to write today, because I’ve been busy with exams and when I was free, I procrastinated. Even with the blueprint there, it felt like I was producing rubbish.
      I will so be taking your advice, and you should take your own 😉 We can struggle together!
