When I first joined Writer's Outlet, I hadn't the slightest idea or plan on where to take it. Do I write about one specific topic and restrict myself to writing just about that, or do I write a cluster of different topics which has no link whatsoever to one another? Honestly, I had no direction in mind at all. All I knew was that I wanted to write. I wanted to have a channel where I could go to express my inner thoughts without really having to speak the words out loud. Sounds like a plan, right? Yeah, that was what I thought, but it proved that it's not as easy as I thought it would be.
There were times where I struggled for days and.... nothing happened. I struggled to even put a whole sentence together because I was struggling for ideas. It was very frustrating.
Tonight happens to be one of the times where I find myself struggling with ideas. It happens. Some days, words flow swiftly and smoothly in my head that my hand struggles to keep up. Then some days, my head will draw a complete blank that no matter how hard I try to squeeze the words out, no words will come.
So what should I do? Should I just throw in the towel and forget about writing completely? Or should I just breathe, be patient, and believe that this temporary setback is just that - temporary.
Well, guess what.... I have 589 pieces of writings published in Writer's Outlet so far, and I'm putting the finishing touches to my 591th piece as we speak.
My point is this. Never give up because nothing is impossible to achieve. I made a choice to be here in Writer's Outlet because I want to write. I am sure all the writers here made that same choice for the same reason. So, let's keep on keeping on and let's write the ride.
