Writing and Life

For those of us who love to write it gets really frustrating when life events get in the way. The reality of life is that they do and that will never change. Of course, that also gives as writer a plethora of new subject matter. What people around us fail to see is that they are all subject to being part of your writing! You learn to change names ( and protect the innocent) with phrasing. I do find it rather amusing that many people think that something I wrote was about them and in reality, it had nothing to do with them at all. For me, it’s a combination of people and events that lead me to write about something. The thing is I never know when these inspirations or events will trigger something and neither do those around me!

A Writers Reality

For those of us who love to write there are certain realities in which you learn comes with the territory.

1.) There is no instant gratification.

2.) You never know if your writing will cause someone to think or not?

3.) There are people who are not going to agree with you.

4) My favorite one is when people think I am writing about them personally. That is really rare but that’s not say I don’t take inspiration from those who come into my life. ( or have in the past)
