The Thrill of The Write

How do you know you’re doing the right thing? Everything seems like a gamble. Do people really like my writing or is it just a handful of propel blowing smoke up my ass. I can’t help but wonder if this will pay off in any other way than just making a fool of myself and being laughed out the writing community. I don’t really know what I’m doing. I know I have a story I want to tell. Does that mean I can actually write a book?

I see people online that are half my age and are on their fifth book. Were they succeful or was just the thrill of the write for them. I can’t tell how to gauge success in the writing world. I’m sure this book will not make me a millionaire. The goal for me is to write a decent book and tell my father’s story. Will I be inspired to write more books? I hope so. I wonder why authors write? Did J.K. Rowling ever imagine Harry Potter would make her rich and famous? I doubt it. Was she writing because it was fun for her? I love to write, but I’m not sure if I can make a living from it.

I guess it’s true that self doubt is a part of everything you want to accomplish. I’ve started now I have to finish. If you are reading this post, I’ve already launched my writer’s page. Now I have to start writing the book I’ve told the world I will write. What do other writers do to motivate themselves? Do they want to write all the time? Do they really know what they’re doing or how long it’s gonna take? I guess I have an advantage because I already know the story I want to write. I’m not trying create a narrative as a I go. I just have to figure how to structure the story to make it interesting and appealing to the readers.

In recent day I realized that I need to write and memorize a statement about what my book is about. I know what it’s about but I sound unsure when I have to explain it to others. I need to be able give and intelligible and concise synopsis of the story without giving away too much. I feel like telling everyone I come across that I’m writing a book so they can take me serious. That means I need to take myself serious. I’m only as important I make myself. I need figure out a way to make everyone excited about my book as I am. Forget expectations. I posted my site and got very little views. I started being more active on Twitter and got 10 new followers in 5 days, all from the writing community.

I need to continue doing what I’m doing. I need to stay committed until things start to happen. I can’t let self doubt sabotage my dreams again. I say again because I’ve been at this fork in the road before. It’s part of the human condition. This needs to be the beginning of my success story. Today is the day I say, I will not let self doubt stop me from being successful. Help me or get out of my way. If your not supporting you are a hindrance and you don’t believe in me. I need you to follow me. Like my posts. Share and Retweet my posts. Read my posts I need you donate when I’m ready to publish and read the damn book when I’m done. You’re either with me or against me. If I’m going to do my part I need you to do your part as a supporter. Let’s do this thing.
