May 1, 2016: Just Keep Writing


I don’t know if I’d go so far as to call it a crisis of faith, per se, but lately I’ve been kind of stuck in a rut with regards to what I want to write – both today and into the future to define my career, if you will. I guess you could say that right now I’m in this place where I don’t know what it is that I want to work on, but at the same time a part of me fears that if I’m not working on the right thing right now, I could be wasting this valuable time towards building the writing career that I want to have.

Anyways, at the very last minute before going to bed yesterday, I had this little brain purge that I wanted to share here now because despite it being very, very late at night, I think it helped to put things back in order in my head just a little and hopefully with enough milling over these words and their spirit here in the near future, it’ll get me back on track to where I’m supposed to be going … wherever that actually happens to be… 😕

Stop worrying about what to write and just write.
Maybe today it’ll be something funny to make people laugh,
Maybe next week it’ll be something serious to pay the bills,
Maybe next year it’ll be the best thing you’ve ever written.
You’ll never know until you’re done, so stop worrying about it and just write it.

Maybe 3,000 people will read it,
Maybe only 3 people will read it,
Or maybe it’s something that you’re really writing just for you.

No single work defines a career.
Life is complex, and creativity is endless.

So enjoy it, and just keep writing along the way.
