The Hardest Thing About Being A Writer

Welcome to day 16 of Blogtober.
I want to let you in a little more and talk about my writing style and process a little bit. We will get to that.

I’ve shared in past blogs why I write and my inspiration for writing.

Let me tell you the hardest thing about writing for me.

It’s not generating ideas-I literally brainstorm and write or type out every single thing on my mind. I don’t worry about spelling, punctuation, or any type of grammar or conventions. I get all of my ideas and thoughts out. I then go back to everything that I have poured out and organize it for all of the above, clarity, consistency-that sort of thing.

If I do run into a case of writer’s block, I am a fan of Pinterest and Google, and usually, that does the trick. If not, I’ll pick up a book and read- that generally does the trick.

The hardest thing for me isn’t even getting started. Although I have been known to procrastinate when it comes to the flood of ideas that come to me in a given week, once I get started, I’m good to go.

The single most hardest thing about writing for me is sharing the writing.

As I mentioned above, I have a plethora of ideas for blog topics (all niches), novels, short stories, how-to’s, informational text, memoirs- you name it, and I probably have an outline, proposal, short story, poem, or book about it saved on my computer somewhere.

I love and enjoy writing. But I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again- I’m a sensitive artist. Even sharing blog post are a bit uncomfortable for me.

I consider my thoughts, my ideas, and my craft sacred, and being this vulnerable freaks me out.

But I’m slowly but surely overcoming those fears, and I look forward to sharing more of my gift with the world.

Thanks for supporting another day of Blogtober. It definitely helps me overcome my fear.
