I’ve met a few different people who have the desire to leave their mark on the world and writing will let them do that. Through their writing they are able to leave a piece of themselves behind when they're gone. I admire these people, and I envy them.
I've been told quite a few times that writing for yourself as in the "I write for me, if people don't like it, then don't read it" mentality is wrong, that just by virtue of writing, you are writing so others will read it. I'm not sure I agree with this mentality, partly because of why I write. Because I have to.
Yup, apparently I am more afraid of spiders that I ever thought possible. Actually, I’m sure some dream guru would tell me otherwise.
“Your subconscious is seeping into your dreams, and in reality you’re not afraid of spiders but of something else and your dreams are manifesting your fears of blah blah blah…”
Yeah, like that.
Here’s what I do know. Without fail, when I stop reading or writing for extended periods of time, my brain kicks it into high gear and the night terrors start. What that means, is I need to fix my schedule and get back to work, Keeper’s is waiting and my brain knows it.
