Chapter One, I Suppose

Published by ithestargazer in the blog ithestargazer's blog. Views: 131

Well I don't know if anyone will ever read this but I suppose that's the thing about wanting to be a writer. It doesn't matter if anyone reads it, just that it was written. :)

So, I'm not quite sure how this site works but I thought I'd post a blog anyway - leave a trace of myself out there in cyberspace.

I love writing, as I suspect you would (being on this site and all) but I have this thing where I can't help but compare myself to other people's work. I hate that I do this because the best thing about writing is that no two writers are the same... it would be a boring world if they were. I just wonder if I will ever be able to define myself as a writer. The worst thing would to be thought of as unoriginal but everytime I have an idea on a whim it turns out someone else beat me to it. I guess it's the cycle, but luckily I still feel I have a few of my own tricks somewhere up my sleeve... now to find them :p. Still, I suppose every person who has ever picked up a pen (or laptop) has probably gone through the same thoughts as me. So I hope I'm not alone out there and that the insecurities I have as a writer (I would never say aspiring as that implies I'm not already a writer and published or not, I will always be a writer) are just one thing I must go through before I take the plunge into the world of words.

Okay, so that's my first blog - I hope I did okay:redface:

To all those writers out there... stay strong! I will be terribly bored If you don't keep writing your amazing stories!
