IT DOES HELP, ACTUALLY

I know that many of us always ask ourselves, "why did this happen to me?". But the true question is, "why not you?" I know that at times things can get very tough, but there is not one experience that we writers cannot benefit from, by turning it into motivation or inspiration.

Whether you have to clean dog poop constantly, or get your children to behave or if you are just struggling with a very hectic life. You can use each and everyone of those experiences. All you have to do is be open minded.

Hobbies tend to be a very helpful thing too. I know that most of us just want to write and cut ourselves off from the world, or at least hat is what I do. I find that I am the most creative when there are more aspects to my life then just writing. After starting with my freelance career, nothing is tougher than having to just write and not doing much else. Somehow not living life, makes my writing lifeless.

So the next time you think why me, use that train of thought to achieve your writing brilliance. Nothing is worse then nothing happening...ever.

Do I make any sense? What do you guys think?

  1. No one wants to deal with difficulties in life but you're right - it's those same traumas that not only inspire but they add depth to writing.

  2. It makes perfect sense... the hardships/obstacles we face and eventually overcome, actually help to mold and shape our lives in many different ways... so we improve... grow... into better human beings and better writers.
