Previous Post: Writing is Hard | WIP Update | October 2022 | Improving
Do you believe everything happens for a reason?
I think so… I really think so. I want to believe that every ounce of pain has a purpose, and every ounce of joy. I don’t want the world to be a random mess of dots colliding with each other. I want there to be a meaning to the madness, a meaning to the peace.
I know not everyone thinks this way. But that’s a good thing. That’s what makes life interesting.
Some believe the world is a random mess. Others believe in finding meaning in what does happen to them, not that there is meaning in what happens exactly when it happens, but using what has happened to move forward in their lives.
I don’t have any of the answers. But, I do have the capability to ponder them and come to a conclusion I can find on my own terms when I write.
Dare I say it again but it is such a joy and amazement and wonder to me that I must. I have rediscovered my love of writing! Working on The Lowell Saga is fulfilling instead of draining, writing blog posts is cathartic and releasing, and I am sending out poetry and short stories to online literary magazines again! I never thought I would lose that love in the first place but I am so happy to have rediscovered it. I don’t pressure myself into writing anymore. I just set a time to sit down and do it and allow the muse to come. And so far she has been coming and coming and coming. 🙂
I hope this means she is deciding to stay for a while haha
Like I have said before I don’t know if The Lowell Saga will ever see the light of a book store but that doesn’t matter to me anymore. I just need to finish the story for myself at this point and that is what is bringing the joy back to writing. It’s just for me, right now, at least 😉
Happy Thanksgiving y’all!! I am so thankful to be able to write again. What are you guys grateful for??
Till next month,
(Currently still revising the first draft of TLS…..)
