Hello, guys! How’s your week going? I hope you like the posts on this blog.
Today I’m going to respond to a question that I’ve been asked a lot in my life, in particular by those who know me personally. The problem we’re talking about is: “Do you not get bored of writing?”
Till know, you might already know – and if you don’t, you’ll find out now – that I’m not only a blogger but also a writer. So I can see where this curiosity comes from. I write book, or blog posts or working as a freelancer in what concerns the writing sphere, and when I do none of that I usually read. My life revolves around words – whether literature or not.
(Mind you, I’m not that boring; I go out and have fun once in a while. Haha)
When people ask me this, I only tell them that I do not. I enjoy what I do, and I mean it. I fiercely adore what I do! No one forced me to write books or start a blog. It was my choice.
Writing is my passion.
I think that for those out there who don’t really know what it means to be so drawn to something that you cannot literally think about anything else I make no sense. For them, I seem to sink into literature; I’d rather say I dive into it. How could I ever get bored of something that make my life more beautiful, that makes it seem fuller? I couldn’t imagine myself doing anything else.
It’s like I have all these voices inside of my head that drive me to share their stories.
I do have writer’s block now and then, but I don’t let this affect me to the extent of not making me cease writing. If I don’t have an idea for the next chapter I find myself writing an article or some poetry, or fanfiction. Of course, I do other things like taking walks, dancing and chatting with friends, but that’s not what I want to pinpoint in this post. Since I’ve written my first novel, I haven’t once thought about quitting writing – and I’ve had my dark periods as anybody else. If anything those times made me a greater writer.
Boredom occurs when you do the same thing over and over again. Writing is different every time.
One chapter is not like the other. Each had its challenges and makes you struggle. But the satisfaction when you finished it is incommensurable. I would high-five myself every time I finish a chapter and tell myself I did a good job. It might not be my best chapter, but I managed to write it and it’s enough for me.
Writing is for persons who are determined.
Do you get easily bored of your hobbies or do you stick to it? Also, if you’re a blogger/writer – do you not get bored of writing?
