Ideal Conditions

This weeks quote from 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.
