On Writing

I never believed I had the gift of gab, yes I can talk for hours on end but I never really believed that what comes out of my mouth is somehow significant.  It never really also dawned on me that I can write, I used to write poems, short stories and stuff like that but never really thought that they can be something for public consumption. I always wrote them for myself and myself alone.

But here I am now, finding myself writing for public consumption. Writing for a living. writing something significant, getting paid for it even! it's not easy, actually it's very hard yet I have come to embrace this new position. It has given me so much. Given me a lot and provided me a good avenue while allowing me to get some of the finer things in life.

Life has been good to me and writing has become a very good vehicle, not only for my way to financial freedom but also as an avenue for my creativity, and a way to lash out at life should I feel like it and love it when its what I deem is needed.

Although writing commercially have it's downfall.... I have found myself writing content and writing more content and not realizing that it has become a monotonous task and I'm finding myself at not enjoying writing. It has become a source of income, nothing more, nothing less.

I have made this resolve. I will write for pleasure and creativity at least once a week and allow this blog to be that avenue, stories, poems and the likes will abound, should abound here... I hope that I can sustain it as writing commercially and professionally has taken its toll... it's time to refresh and rejuvenate!
