My Feelings About Writing
12/17/2008 10:56:44 AM    [ Flag as Inappropriate ]

I DO IT FOR ME!


I write because it fills a void in my soul. I write because it's theraputic and it's one of the greatest joys of my life. I write because I can, it's a gift God gave to me and I enjoy it almost too much. I don't write to get reviews though I deeply appreciate each one that is left on my poety or stories. I don't write to get a publishing contract, I know that is probably only a pipe dream. I don't write so people will understand me, most never do and I'm ok with that.

Sometimes real life is so heavy we can barely lift our load. During those times I try to find time to write because I need that outlet for my emotions. I may not find time to read and comment, but I always wish I could. I've been writing a long time and if you are waiting for the approval of others to become inspired then I have to question your source of inspiration. I put my work here because it's a good place for posting and also enjoying the friendship and work of other writers but if I was expecting a writer's site to keep me from giving up or to stroke my ego then I would have quit writing a long time ago. I write for me and if someone else relates to and enjoys what I write I'm happy for that but I'm not dependent on it.

I don't expect anything from anyone and I don't want someone to read my work to repay me for reading theirs. I want to be read because the reader is enjoying reading me. I am thankful for each friend I have made online, I treasure them but I didn't join a social club when I joined here, I joined an author's site. I do deeply treasure the friendship of other Authors but I can't expect anything from them. I think most of my readers come from online and not from AD. The ones who read and comment here I deeply appreciate but I think we need to just let people come and go as they see fit and not let it hurt or anger us. We know very little about lives of other authors, we have to give each other space and remember they are not us, we are not them. We are not walking in each other's shoes.

There are times, like death and critical illness when time becomes even more taken up with reality and doing what we must to survive. Don't ever think you know another's reasons or motives for being absent from reading and commenting. It may be that they are in a position where they are not able to be supportive because they are trying to carry a load that demands most of their time. If we stop expecting things from others, our life will be better and when they do show support it will be a pleasant surprise. We are in hard, frightening times, let every care you can drop be dropped. Worrying about who reads us who reviews us is something we can afford to dispose of. Write for YOU and be satisfied with your work, then you will never be disappointed about readers or reviews.
