“You don’t start out writing good stuff. You start out writing crap and thinking its good stuff, and then gradually you get better at it.
That’s why I say one of the most valuable traits is persistence.”
― Octavia E. Butler
A writer is a person who never sees his work as the best written work ever, the day he admits he’s written his best part, he’ll stop experimenting much with his work. Being satisfied in our field is the end of the story and a writer would never want his characters to die in the story.
Everybody walks past a thousand story ideas every day. The good writers are the ones who see five or six of them. Most people don’t see any.
– Orson Scott
The same has been my motto for these Great 1000 days of my life where I was always around my journal at the end of the day. No matter how good or bad the other day was, my companion would be my pen and a diary.
“People say, ‘What advice do you have for people who want to be writers?’ I say, they don’t really need advice, they know they want to be writers, and they’re gonna do it. Those people who know that they really want to do this and are cut out for it, they know it.”
— R.L. Stine
After spending so much time with pen, papers, and stationery I feel as if I don’t even need a human interactions in my life. Hahah! Jokes apart! I truly believe this is something which we all read on the Internet that one of the good habits is to read and write every day, but how many people actually are accepting that advice and keep it going? Tough, right?
It certainly is, until and unless you dwell yourself in the ocean of self-love. The moment you have all the faith in yourself, nobody is ever going to stop you, or rather I should say, nobody CAN stop you because what keeps you going is not what is outside but INSIDE.
