Write On, Someone Wants To Read It


The Writers Circle

I haven’t had the chance to interviewed a fellow writer, blogger, or author to get their take on this quote. A lot of us, I’m sure, may have been through this before, including me.

I do would like to know from anyone who went through this, how were you able to overcome it? What advice can you give to the ones who may be suffering and fighting their way through?

I believe, if you can, ignore that nasty, mean voice that taunt you daily that you cannot write your story. Or, that poem, memoir, and even that post in your blog. Oftentimes, we hold ourselves back because we are afraid that whatever we are writing aren’t good enough. We would tell ourselves, “Who would read this?” Someone out there wants to read your story. May it be fiction or nonfiction, they can relate to your appealing story in some way.

So I say to you, write to your heart content. Birth that wonderful story of yours and introduce it to the world.

Keep Calm, She’s Writing

Sometimes when I go ghost on someone is not because they had done something bad to me, I’m simply trying to stay balanced with everything I have going on.

At times, when you have a project to do, and with a deadline attached, some doesn’t or won’t understand how much it means to you. I know for others it took a lot of effort, hard work, and dedication to get to where they are today. Some even had to cut some people off.

Recently, a female even unfriended me whom I have always been cordial to. She wants to be a writer also, and I started to noticed that everything I was posting from WordPress, she’d copied. The content was changed and anything else I would do wherever from the internet, she would copycat. I made a post on Facebook about it (not mentioning her name), and before I known it, she unfriended me. Oh well.

I won’t repeat myself on how I got to the point I am now, and still pushing to strive for my previous posts said it all for me. Heated arguments, losing people, what will that bring you down the line? Being a people pleaser, and putting your dreams on hold for someone who can care less will NOT get you far in life. You have to help yourself as well. Trust me I know. From this point on, if you have not already, start your day, your life off to where YOU want it to be.  It’s your life and only you can live it. You only have one, make great use of it.

Life Learned Lesson


sunset
It was the year 2008 when I took that risk that changed my life to the point that looking back, I can truly say life is an excellent teacher.

******

I didn’t want to do it, i mean, I barely knew what i was doing. I had once spent my life afraid of taking risks, allowing others to make a decision that I didn’t partake on.

I once traveled by bus to meet him, never rode on a Greyhound neither alone or with someone before. The ride was an experience but I was afraid to let my eyes drift for that seven hours ride. It was only seven anyway and I’m the type of person who will and once had stayed up nearly 30 hours. (Another story, another day)

Once I came to my designated stop, I slowly reached for my bags and turned to searched for him. I couldn’t see him at first, but he was there hiding in plain sight. Why was he hiding? I was wondering. We had only talked on the phone after meeting one another on a dating site- if I’m not mistaken, didn’t quite say “dating” on the site though. I also wasn’t too eager before the trip to meet him.

When he saw me first- I appeared the way I looked online then, so he immediately knew it was me. But, I didn’t recognized him. Who is this person? So, I tried not to frown up in front of him, didn’t want to hurt any feelings. But, the whole description of him from online was WAY off. Instead of a guy who said he was twelve years older than me was actually thirty years older! More and more of what I thought I was getting was the total opposite.

It never worked out and thinking back I’m glad. Turned out he was a crazed, deranged stalker who was married. I never been in that type of danger and it gave me a new outlook on life. “Hard to trust on the internet” and/or put trust in someone’s words. I was young then, and now that I’m older I can make better, well thought-out decisions. But, I’ve learned.

I met my child’s father in that city a few months later, which was too quick and gotten pregnant just as quick. Her father turned out to be somewhat not what I thought either. Even though I met him in person through a mutual friend, he went from one way that attracted me to him, to me making what I believed another damn mistake. (Excuse my language.) I don’t regret having my daughter though. That’s the only good thing. I’m not even going to complain of all the sacrifices and horrible stuff I endured since then. It made me who I am today, which I turned into a hardened-hearted person then to someone accepting what life thrown at me and make better use of it. You only live once.
