Life Effecting How You Look At Your Writing

image

I hear numerous writers speak on finding the motivation from within to write everyday because lets face it there will be days where you don’t feel like writing a damn thang.

What I wanna talk about is deeper than just having a bad day and deciding not to write. Let me ask you this, does your life outside of writing (i.e. relationships, friendships, job or lack thereof one, etc) effect how you view your writing? Now I know some of you are putting on your holier than thou pants saying you’re not a real writer if you allow your life situations to effect how you view or approach your writing. To you who think that go sit down somewhere, this post will be for my real people. If you haven’t noticed I’ve slacked on writing especially on this blog. To be honest it’s been because of my current situation. I’m not going to go into descriptive detail about what’s been going on but just know it was bad enough in my eyes to make me not feel the joy of storytelling. Call it me being depressed because when a person is they don’t feel like doing those simple joys of life. My question is can life change how you view your writing? Yes it can. I wish I can tell you differently but I gotta keep it 100. When you can’t feed your family, it effects how you view your writing. When there is a close death you question it. You get what I’m saying?

Have my situation changed? Obviously, if I’m writing again I feel slightly bad for letting it get to that point but my best advice is sometimes you have to step back and re-evaluate your shit until that passion comes back in a full fledge hustlin’ mode. You will be doing your fans a favor. They can tell when you’re not passionate about yours.

Peace and luv!

Unleash the demon in you

“An artist is a creature driven by demons….he is completely amoral in that he will rob, borrow, beg or steal from anybody to get the work done.

Well damn that makes us look like some crackheads! I can dig it though. The quote is from 1956 during an interview from author William Faulkner. Crazy how that sums up what it feels like to be a writer. I’ve joked before that I have multiple personalities running thangs in my head, each vomitting out new stories (ok vomitting may not be the appropriate word but anywho…). None are satisfied until they get the attention they crave. Those are my demons.

“The writer’s responsibility is to his art. He will be completely ruthless if he is a good one. He has a dream. It anguishes him so much he must get rid of it. He has no peace until then.”

When life happened and I became too busy chasing boys and having babies among the choices I made to please everyone but my damn self I still craved writing. Any conversation, situation, hell a tv show would blossom an idea. The thorns would scratch at the door that locked my creativity until one unlocked the door and I was finally at peace. That is what you call an Oprah ah-ha moment.

How do you feel about writing and the whole process of it? Tell me about your demons so i won’t feel like I am the only crazy one here.

Peace and luv from yours truly,

Talia
