I almost wrote a post this week comparing myself to a more prominent writer, a post putting my much lesser talents down,but then I thought, “No, I ain’t gonna do it!” ( See, what a command I have on the English language, truly amazing!)
And that is when I had an epiphany.
What’s that you ask?
Well and epiphany is…oh, you mean what was the epiphany?
That is it? Afraid so.
I have spent too much of my writing time already on pouting, complaining, and comparing. That last one on the list is the worst of them all.
Comparing myself to other writers is a great blow to my self-esteem, and let’s face it, some of you are better at this than I am ! Some of you even use proper grammar,punctuation, and spelling! Damn you perfectionists!
But, I love to write, think I’m fairly good at it, and the point is to have fun with it; at least that is my point in doing it.
Too many times have I compared my blog to other people’s blogs, let myself wonder if I’d get more followers if I could just write like that guy over there, and in general taken it all too serious like..But now, I am saying: No More!
The only joy in writing is writing what you like and as long as I stick to that principle,I’m okay. I don’t have to prove anything. I just need to write. I just got to roll with it, baby!
So, did you ever have an epiphany? Every roll with it?
