I was wrong all along about writing

I am happy to know this at the start of a new year.
The problem was not the goals or results I wanted . It was the lifestyle I had.
What I mean is that if you look at the life of famous writers. There’s really no pattern. The only link is they all had their own lifestyle that allowed them to write.
Some writers sacrificed parties so they could write. Others changed from novels to short stories.

I am happy to know this at the start of a new year.

The problem was not the goals or results I wanted . It was the lifestyle I had.

What I mean is that if you look at the life of famous writers. There’s really no pattern. The only link is they all had their own lifestyle that allowed them to write.

Some writers sacrificed parties so they could write. Others changed from novels to short stories.

Still they had their own lifestyle peculiar to them but allowed them to write.

As regards the goals I talked about.

For the first three months (quarter). I will be focused on flash prose. Which includes

  • Flash fiction
  • Microfiction
  • Flash nonfiction
  • Flash poems etc

No more hiding . Every week I will document my work for the week and I will add links to resources.

If you have a genre of writing you will love for me to consider. Please let me know.

Next week I will give you the break down of the goals and experiment with writing exercises.

This year I am working to have the lifestyle of a professional writer. If you ask me , I don’t really know what that looks like. I guess we will find out.

Until next time, keep writing.
