Day Nine: About Me…The Remix

Today is where your book begins…the rest is still unwritten.

-Natasha Bedingfield, Unwritten

I had a love for writing as a kid.  I probably loved to write as much as I loved to read(I did a great deal of reading).  Here is a back story, which is only one reason, why I write. Even though I was told I was an excellent writer, and should make a career out of it. I would go on to persue other avenues instead.

I always say I want to write a book, but fear steps in and freezes me, paralyzing myself and my thoughts of publishing a book.  I move away from the voices of fear and doubt. The ones saying, You can’t write a book! No one wants to read anything you have to say!  You will fail, so don’t waste your time. I leave those voices  and my dreams behind, and do exactly what they say…don’t waste your time.

Now that I’ve decided to go publicly with my writing, I came to realize, people do want to read what I have to write about! Thank God for the WordPress community! I can’t thank my fantastic readers enough. I greatly appreciate my readers,  but there is a part of me that still wants to experience writing professionally. I want to bury doubt and fear in my feelings of accomplishment and determination.

    It’s always nice when one returns to their love. And always know, there are many who desire to read your words.

    It is hard to fight back those voices in our heads, I think most of us hear them. I agree, this is a terrific community to be a part of. By the way, I love your shirt. I teach Creative Writing and Newspaper Journalism to 7th and 8th graders and think I should wear this shirt to work every day. I have a lot of students who want to be novelists and at this point in their lives they don’t seem to be hearing the voice telling them they aren’t good enough. I wonder when that happens?

      That’s actually not my shirt. I Googled and found it interesting! I actually want it now that I have seen it. I don’t know when the negative views of self start, maybe it’s around the start of high school. Hopefully you just have a confident group, and they never lose their dream. Good luck with your students! Keep being an inspiration to all.
