I often think about writing but always convince myself I’d just be wasting my time and anything I’d write would never see the light of day. Time will tell I suppose. Maybe I should try, secretly. Reply Verushka says: August 3, 2017 at 9:26 pm I vote for the secret writing for sure! If it’s in you to think about being a writer one day, you (and Kristen below) ought to see where it goes methinks/ Reply Kristen @ Metaphors and Moonlight says: August 2, 2017 at 5:06 pm I’m def guilty of stopping myself from writing. I get too indecisive and bogged down in details though, and that’s what stops me because I never want to start if I don’t have the details figured out! Reply Verushka says: August 3, 2017 at 9:22 pm Nooo, Kristen, leave the editing and filling in the details for later! OR do a JKR and plan the hell out of everything! Reply kimbacaffeinate says: August 2, 2017 at 11:48 pm Truth, but I think you need to go for it, before the moment passes. Reply Verushka says: August 3, 2017 at 9:19 pm Exactly! No matter if you think it’s bad. Just do it! Reply Suzanne @ The Bookish Libra says: August 7, 2017 at 3:40 am Great advice, and not just for writing either. Sometimes you really just have to take a chance and go for it. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
