(As a follow up to last week’s post.)
You’re allowed to call daydreaming “work”.
You have entire universes in your head.
You get to have experiences you never would in real life.
Every experience you do live through is fuel for writing.
Your mind is teeming with wondrous things.
Your characters become your best friends.
Creativity and imagination are the only tools you need.
It’s very therapeutic.
You realize a writer’s job title is “make stuff up”.
All the studying you need to do is simply reading books you love.
You get to have adventures everyday.
Being insane is part of the job.
You get to “meet” all sorts of new people through your stories without ever having to leave the comfort of your own home.
Your words impact others.
Staying up at ridiculous hours and consuming unhealthy amounts of caffeine is perfectly acceptable.
You get to blast your music as loud as you want because it’s inspiring.
Your view of the world is beautiful and adventurous and different from most people.
Your stories throw out exciting surprises at you.
You make new discoveries.
You realize writing is a big, scary, tedious, gruesome, time-consuming, overwhelming thing to do but because of that very reason it’s one of the most incredible things you’ll ever experience.
