To write or not to write…the question is where to begin?

So, as a Communications major, I like to think that I’m a, if not a great at least good, writer. I like to think like that every day when I think about writing or when I read a wonderful written book. I say to myself, “I can do that, I’m a great writer…why I majored in Communications!” But there lies, the issue…a writer, writes! I don’t do enough writing to be considered a writer. And how do I know this? Because every writing job I have applied to request a sample writing…what? Am I going to submit the stuff I wrote back in college? Don’t think so (although I have done that in the past with no results whatsoever).

So, here I am, writing. Not anything good, truly, I understand that I have to write every day so that I can exercise my writing skills (or muscle…how ever you want to look at it). I was listening to some motivational tapes earlier today, and in a nutshell, they said that I have to write every day to get good as a writer…and that’s what I want to do…its exactly what I want to do…because I want to be known as a writer.

I’ll be honest, I’m not the best person to keep a commitment like showing up every day to write…there I put it out there…that is my biggest downfall for anything I want that requires a certain amount of dedication…the truth is that I do get bored and distracted…I do. Yet it pains me…and yet…most of the time, I do little to resolve it…not this time. This time I want to take it as far as I can, so I’m here to write.

Please forgive the randomness of my thoughts, but hopefully when I get better, reading my work will not be so painful. 🙂

So here’s to a bright new journey…see you on the morrow.
