A non Writing WriterNon-writing writer
Cause I' m the non-writing writer
Since childhood I dreamt of becoming a writer. I began in primary education when I made "books" by stitching building papers together and writing these scandalous tales about children who found magic items in their backyards or ran away from home and constructed an artful treehouse to be used.
When I was a teenager, I was writing (and I can't believe I'm openly acknowledging ) fans' fictions for my favourite films and TV shows and published them on-line to get the critics of Supergeeks all over the game. When I was in colleges, I was studying writing and writing essays for the newspaper to find out more about the translation skills of the tales I had in my mind that I recognised all around me in something that other folks wanted to do.
But those hopes were gone when I joined the world of work at the age of 22. It was in the amusement business that I began as an aide and dreamed of becoming a TV writer. But the disadvantage is that the work in real world will take over your whole being. But between my rude working times, my date lives and the little appearance of a societal lifestyle that I hardly cling to, I have very little writing to do.
Now I am 3+ years out of college and I am happy if I manage in writing 4 records in my journal each and every month. 3+ years out of college. It is not that I totally forgot to type - quite the opposite. I' m reading scripts and scripts. I' m subscribing to and reading The Writers Digest.
I' m talking to writer lovers about writing. I' m writing the title of items I could type and journals they might want to buy. I' m making myself a schedule that's only for writing. Hölle, for the novel I'm working on right now, I've sketched the character, places and chapter and I've been researching a lot for month, and I keep saying to myself that I can't get started until I've 100% made it.
I am diverted by a problem in my relationships, or I will be overwhelmed at work for a weeks or two and forgetting my idea lists. I will fall asleep my alarmer instead of getting up early to start writing, or I will consent to go to a pub with my mates when I am writing in the evenings and think that I should live my own lives and enjoy myself, and I will do it later when I have it.
Or I' ll just go to my computer to type and get bogged down after a few phrases, so I'll be checking my e-mail, my Facebook or the Huffington Post and soon my days are up and I haven't really achieved anything. No, I'm just afraid to bite the ball and put myself in front of the empty Word document and type this first line.
I' ve made The Non-Writing Writer so I can lodge a complaint about this strange phenomena that seems to concern a large group of young would-be authors out there. I' d like to investigate the true causes that we don't type - whether it's the anxiety of taking the first move and getting yourself out, or the worry that if you actually type something, it will suck and you find that you're not a good writer at all.
I' d like to blogs about the so-called "writing life" that seems to me to be evading, about the way I and others in front of a similar bloc might be encouraged to read, and even about the things I do instead of writing them down. Who knows, maybe this blogs even inspires me to be a writer who is writing.............. although that can mean I have to name it, and that graphics took me lessons to create it.
