Writers True To Yourself

When we begin to write we often have a mindset that we want to become a certain kind of writer. The thing is that it can diminish your creative thoughts. Sure there are basic concepts in writing but I think that as writers we need to ask ourselves one question.

Am I truly being honest with myself or am I trying to fit into a certain genre? Those can be two different things altogether and can lead to years of frustration. I know there are sometimes social pressures that can push you in a certain direction. Then inevitably this leads to the ultimate question.

How much are you willing to compromise and ignore the kind of writing that you were meant to write?

Is Your Life In Peril?

For many of us, we think that every single second our life is in peril. In some cases that is true but for most it’s not unless it is time for you to go to the great beyond.

While sitting on my back deck this morning and watching birds zip around looking for food this thought came to mind. The bird’s lives are generally in peril all the time. There are times that they can’t find food and knowing if they don’t it’s over.

So as you go through your daily life stop for a second and ponder the idea if your life is in true peril or you just like the adrenaline rush?

Blogging Through The Years

I had my first blog post in 2006( yes I am that old) and at the time I went by duke1959 which was ok but over time I started a new blog 1959 duke which lasted just about forever. Due to the fact, there was too much pain and suffering in them I closed it down sometime back. Life really wasn’t much fun at that point. Then comes the question as to why now? Circumstances in life have changed things so much of my life. Frankly writing is my passion and if I don’t follow it now when? The old-time clock of life is just chugging along and of course, I don’t have any idea when it will stop!
