What It Means To Me To Be A Writer

Okay, so if anyone here has come from my old blog (MissSophiaBlog) then you may have seen this post before. I was going through my old musings to see what I wanted to keep and what I didn’t mind losing to the depths of the web when my website is officially inactive and I came across a post from 2014, I would have been 17. And it just made me laugh at how… almost pure it is? A lot has changed for me in these past five years, both internally and externally but I still, and believe I always will, have a burning passion for writing.

Since I was young, I’ve loved reading and writing. English has and always will be my favourite subject. I find the achievements of words amazing, from the likes of Martin Luther King’s speech to the literature of Mark Twain, I truly believe that words can change the world. It takes one sentence to break a heart and a handful to make someones day, they possess so much power and I feel like many people fail to realise that. I want my words in my writing to possess that power as well.

After dabbling in writing novels to plays to sitcoms and movie scripts, articles and blog posts, it never gets boring and if I go a day without writing, it’s like a stick of lead weighing me down because I haven’t been productive. Being able to write, to create new worlds and ideas with nothing more than a couple of paragraphs, to me, is an astounding thing to be able to do, the limits of words are endless and I find this both terrifying and incredible at the same time.

One day, I crave that feeling of being able to write down on application forms that I am a writer, not a waitress or a student or a blogger, I want to be a writer. I can’t go a day without the clogs turning in my head, constructing thoughts of what to write next, it’s impossible not to think about writing for me. No matter what i’m doing, if it’s not writing then I feel like I’m wasting my time and as a professional procrastinator, genuinely feeling like i’m wasting my time is saying something.

I wish to be a writer one day but for now, it’s just  me and my blog.

I think it might always be just me and my blog now, I quite enjoy this relaxed system I have going on.

    To go off what Richard said, if you write, write, write (which you are doing through your blog 😊) then you are all ready a writer. Keep that in mind, and it will help you as you grow your skill! 💜💜💜
