Random Thoughts - Wanna Be Writer
Saturday, January 31, 2015
How do writers get past the self-doubt, how do they come up with original ideas. Meh. I feel so stuck in life, I need something exciting. I keep feeling like there is just something gnawing at my being, but I have no idea what it is. I have this desire to write, like all the time, but then I sit down at the computer or with my notebook and find that Pinterest is more exciting or my hand goes numb from the writing within the first few sentences.
I want to write about real adult relationships, but I don’t feel like I am an adult yet and don’t know how to write for that market. I want to write about post-apocalypse scenarios but I feel like the market is flooded with them. How do I figure out a real, new and interesting story?
What about a fairy-tale retelling? That sounds awesome, but I am still stuck on how to do that.
Actually, that kinda gets me excited right now. Maybe I will have to brainstorm that. What fairy tale should I pick? Maybe just randomly writing ridiculous blog / journal posts will get my juices flowing! I always am a little apprehensive about posting my own writing on my blog than some easy reviews. It is much easier to review someone else’s work rather than have your own judged.
So, there is my ramblings. Tell me your ramblings – do you want to be a writer, do you consider yourself a writer? How do you find inspiration?
