I want to be a profound writer. I really do. I want to say something important that means something. I want it to be my calling to make great contributions to the literary world. This isn't about being famous. It's about writing the right thing. Think about those things you read that changed the way you think even if just for a moment but in turn change who you are a little. Reading has had that effect on me. I write feverishly and I publish somewhat regularly. I think my goal is to be profound. Does all this sound silly? I'm a pretty prolific writer. And don't judge me if I lie in bed several days a week just reading. My soul needs it. And there are certain works that I must at times return to an reread. I start to memorize certain massages almost by accident. If no one is home, I will read aloud. I'm not even sure how great you really have to be to be a profound writer. I think you have to be good enough to get into the right publications or still in with the right publisher so what you write really gets out there. The most profound novel I ever read I got for $3.99 in the remainders section of a local bookstore. I've since read everything that author has written, I'm pretty sure. I believe her writing is important. There are essayist, short story writers and poets I all find profound. I read a lot in the contemporary literary scene. I want the reason I'm a writer to be because I'm supposed to be a writer. Do any of you feel this way? Like you desperately want this to be your calling? This both pushes me and pressures me. Still, I procrastinate, but I usually do that my writing something or working on a different piece of writing instead of whatever I should really me focusing on. But I do really try. I'm about to turn something over to an editor and I'm pretty nervous even though this should be a pretty much done deal. But whatever about that. I want to believe I'm doing this for a reason. Do you want to be a profound writer? Maybe you already are?
