What do you love about the craft?
Writing can be so many things all at once. But you are sharing each part. I have heard people say writing is sacred and it is spiritual and in its own way, even praying. You can use many descriptive words and you can make people see things in writing that you cannot show in pictures alone.
You get to describe of the feelings and actions of something you love or hate. There is a spirit with in writing that comes across, no other way.
Imagine if you will a blind person, and you are describing in detail everything written as in a story, a poem, or singing as a song. That blind person would experience the true feelings you have and the way everything is intended to flow. That is of course, if it is done correctly.
Even in the worst writing ever, there is something to take away and be learned from.
What do you hate? The thing I hate about writing is only if someone tries to limit or censor my words to a point all meaning is taken away. I sometimes hate the fact that there are not enough hours in the day to write about everything I wanted to write for that day.
What’re you struggling with, when it comes to this challenge? I struggle with the grammar and the correct diagram of each topic and supportive lines to each heading; to make it all flow easy into the main idea and or the whole title, so it is not so choppy, and the focus is lost. I struggle with making the title and each heading catchy enough to hold the reader’s attention.
Sometimes, it is scratching beneath the surface to get everything up and look at it all in its totality and starting all over. Some of the ideas that are hardest to put together stay stuck in your head and keep coming out as you write and mean absolutely nothing, to anyone else but the writer.
The message is lost. All is gone and you find yourself unable to bring forth any message except for a couple hundred words of which you cannot make any sense from.
You question yourself and your ability and you stop writing. You are miserable and make everyone around you miserable until you are finally able to make sense again. This cannot make any sense to anyone unless they write.
I go through a gamut of emotions and sometimes find it very hard to express those and still get the message out. Other times it is those emotions which cause everything to flow.
A lot of people will never understand how spiritual it is or how important it is to you until you finally reach your goal of reaching them.
Writing is a way of having your hand in Gods hand and reaching out to another and it’s like lightning strikes, but it can never happen the same way twice. It can be very hard to pick yourself up and dust yourself off and go back to the beginning and wonder if you have everything in place.
In closing writing is very dear to my heart and I don’t know, if I can ever get the message out to others or tell the story in the right way, that will grasp their attention. But I will keep trying until I do.
Thanks for reading!
