I am just a girl, standing in front of boy... Wait - that's been done before, right?
Let me back up a bit. I'm really just a girl sitting in front of her Mac with words and ideas swirling about her head. The trouble is those words sure take their time falling from my brain to my fingertips so that I can craft something worth reading - hence the title of my blog.
I also am sitting here shaking my head as I type this. So many people out there want to be writers, but is it something truly attainable? It's like saying you want to be an astronaut or something. In all honesty, I might have a better chance of getting to the moon than publishing a book. The market is flooded and whose to say that my idea is not being written this very second by someone else? Right now my goal is to just FINISH something. I can worry about the publishing part once that is done.
I also have the slight problem of being a perfectionist. I struggle so much with writing without editing as I go. I'm not sure where along the line this became such an issue for me, but it is a huge hurdle to get over. I just need to write and worry about fixing the junk later. Stamina also seems to be a problem for me. Sometimes I have to force myself to sit down and write something. Should writing be painful at times or is it always moonlight and roses?
Admitting all these shortcomings may be like shooting myself in the foot, but hey, I like to keep it real.
Thanks for following me on this journey.
