Drawing Conclusions

No, this post isn’t what you think it is. I’m taking a breather for a couple of hours because my brain is on overload. Again, this is not what you think. My brain is not having a meltdown due to the monsoon of Richard Armitage information yesterday. Oh, perhaps I could have a meltdown over that, but well, I’m not. I’ve been expecting that flood. I thought it would come more near the first of November, but what do I know?! LOL!

So here’s what this post is really about. I’ve been coming to the conclusion for a good while that there is entirely too much to write about. I can’t get to all of it. When I started this blog, I was wondering if I would be able to crank out enough writing. Now? I’ve branched into others things and can’t seem to stop! It’s stunning to me what I’ve been doing the last few years. Me, the person who swore up and down I would never write anything unless I was forced to do it, writing and writing and writing and getting high on that! One of these days, I may post a story I’ve written. That will be another major step for me. Phew! I want to laugh that I am actually writing ficiton and enjoying it. Who woulda thunk?

If you’re thinking about writing, but you think it’s too late for you or you’re not a writer because you have this lofty and dare I say ridiculous standard of what a writer is supposed to be, let it go and start writing! You’ve heard people say this, and I’m joining the chorus. Don’t wait. Don’t leave writing to those individuals who supposedly have some gift that’s been granted to a chosen few. That’s all bull. You’ve got something to say. So say it. It may not come out exactly how you want it when you begin. Keep at it!

Not sure how to start? Well, you could write a journal. Or maybe you did that, and now it’s gotten old ’cause you need input. Maybe you can start a blog and if you’re really concerned about looking like a fool, make yourself anonymous. There’s an idea. :D

Yeah, this is getting the Richard Armitage tag ’cause Richard has been a kind of impetus, and I don’t mean of the sexual kind but of something much greater. Thank you, Rich.

  1. You forgot the “Being A Ripple” tag and you need to edit that because you don’t have any idea how much you are right at this moment. LOL

  2. Done! :D And I added to the Deluge post too. Forgot it first time ’round.

  3. Bravo. I applaud you. I’ve been writing forever, it seems, and there is nothing so lovely as finding yourself in that stream of words you allow yourself to record. Whether anyone ever sees them has always been irrelevant to my honesty in writing. For when I write, I have promised that I will always be honest to myself, first and foremost. Keep it coming, Frenz.

  4. Thank you, Janine! I hope others read your words and are inspired to do something with it!

  5. So glad you are writing. It is wonderful. I love it. Enjoy yourself and write any and every thing your heart desires. :)

  6. Yay! I look forward to reading (more) of your writing. I’ve enjoyed this blog for so long, I’m sure I’ll enjoy your other writing as well.

  7. Katie and Beverly, Thank you! It means a lot coming from writers! ;)

  8. I agree with you. I have written songs and poems for years, but I did not begin to write fiction until August, when I started to RP with others. I now have my own story going, plus I am an Anon for three other people. It’s been wonderful to realize I can flesh out different characters and give them a voice. I hope to continue writing the rest of my life.

  9. Keep at it, Frenz! I look forward to your posts and musings! They are both relevant and refreshing. I, too, have thought of committing the notes in my mind to a journal or blog. Certainly, discovering Richard Armitage, his work and admirers has initiated me to the endless communication possibilities ‘out here’. You have been an inspiration to many.
