It’s one of the things I like about writers…they are always thinking! A word, a phrase, a TV show with captivating monologues, movies with desperate characters – they all spark the imagination that lives within us and makes us go all warm and fuzzy. I think that’s what passion feels like – that gooey, fuzzy, warm-all-over feeling of loving something so much you can just feel it everywhere because it lives inside you. When that pours out onto the page, that’s ink-blood putting our souls on paper in words that become our babies – we mold them, hone them, encourage them to grow up and get out into the big world. We want others to hear them and say “my your words are wonderful – they are so lucky to have been borne of your blood, sweat and tears.” Only another writer knows the feeling – only another writer shares the painstaking process of bearing literary off-spring, any time of the day or night, any time of the year.
It’s okay. The passion never leaves you even though your words might. It’s always there – just conceive another plot and keep on pushing yourself to produce more and more. We get better with age so … keep on writing.
