Ideal Conditions

This weeks quote from https://saltedcaramel670.wordpress.com/2022/07/25/blogging-insights-nf-47/ is ”A writer who waits for ideal conditions, under which to work, will die before putting pen to paper.”

There is never an ideal condition to write, there are times when I cannot think of anything valid to say. I find it worse when I’m typing, because I am aware of the edits as they go along. When I am writing in my notebook, I’m not as worried about getting it right first time.

When I’m working, I will write in the evenings, during the school holidays I will write more during the day. Sometimes, like yesterday, something I love is pulled out of nothing more than a picture, or word prompt. Sometimes I hate everything I write, but post it anyway, because I know I am more critical of my own writing.

I think it is good to write every day because it keeps you motivated to write. Even if it is rubbish, I always think of Hemmingway at this point, at least it is written down. Mostly, I enjoy writing, but there are times when I hate my words and hit that delete button.

At least I am putting pen to paper, or typing on my keyboard, because this is more than a hobby to me. I love creating words out of nothing. Creating a world where a fictional character is living, learning, and going on a journey, where I can control the happy ending.
