My mind is flooded with the images of characters and stories I make up. Everyday it goes on.
In my dreams, in the shower, even when I’m watching TV. Of course I put all my ideas on paper,
or my iPhone, computer, etc…. My thing is, in my head these are good stories. These are solid characters
going through their everyday lives trying to survive. I actually enjoy reading my books, and I really enjoy
when someone reads my work and they get excited about it.
But can I really tell if what I think is true? Do other writers go through the same roller coaster of emotions
that I do about their own work? The writers that I have talk to say yes. Well, not all of them, but most of them.
I’m not saying I’m the greatest writer in the world, but I can hold my own. I actually get stressed about people around
me that give my encouragement and say they will help (big or in a small way) and then they disappear. I use to think it
was because that maybe my stories really did suck and their interest in my work failed. I’m not saying that they can’t change
their minds, but it’s still a punch to the gut.
People get busy in their lives and I found out a large number don’t read books, which kind of explains some of it. I am not a
writer that has to be in the top ten best-sellers. I don’t need movie deals and tons of money ( I want those things, but not need).
I do need support from people that I support and care about. But to tell you the truth… It can be bad, good, or just whatever. I will
continue to put out books and try to branch out into other areas to push my idea of what the fantasy Universe in my head is all
about. I enjoy writing and reading too much to stop. But for now, I will work on my projects, try to connect to people more, and really
work on marketing and presentation. So until next.
