Blabber of a wannabe writer

There are times that you feel so low that you think you’re the most useless person alive. You’re asking yourself, “Am I doing the right thing?”

Should I continue writing? Should I get another job? How about what I want to do? But, how about the bills? How about my family waiting for financial support? Will I earn enough writing and selling books? Enough to even buy a simple card for my husband this Valentine’s day?

How cruel is it to know and feel what you are meant to be but the whole world is telling you that you’ll just starve. You’ll get frustrated trying. You’ll die writing without recognition and a single penny.

But, why is it that even they keep pulling and putting you down, you go back trying and working hard – proving that you can be a writer - that writing is more than earning and winning.

Writing is not just earning a living. Writing is living.
