Sometimes I feel a bit restless or even anxious. Then I realize it’s because I didn’t write.
There are moments in my life where I just want to write. It’s an expression of my soul. Something I can’t live without.
It’s so necessary, like breathing air – and I’m not even exaggerating.
Writing just sets my soul free. Some need to paint, to write songs or to dance.
I need words.
Since I was a child I have always loved writing. I wrote long holiday journals and short stories in elementary school that my teacher back then said I need to promote my talent.
It’s in my genes
As a kid I wanted to be an artist, still not knowing which kind of artist. But something creative.
As a young teenager I wanted to become a book writer. I started my first fictional book at the age of 12, wrote many many pages but still haven’t finished it.
During high school and university times I was so caught in studying that I almost forget about my dream to become a writer.
But now here I am again, rediscovered my dream and being a fictional writer is something I want to pursue more than ever.
I’m really lucky to already write words for a living in an amazing company. But creating your own world, designing your own characters and build a total new (fictional) world from scratch is just A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!
So here we go again.
Follow your intuition, your soul knows the way
When you’re a writer too, you probably know this feeling when a story sticks with you almost night and day. You really begin to FEEL it, begin to see things or experience situations that remind you of your book in your outer world.
When there is something that you can’t let go of, a thing, your soul always comes back to and you’re constantly thinking about it (provided that’s in a good and positive way, not in a toxic one), then it’s your thing.
Go write that book, that poem or song.
It could change your life forever.
But the most important thing is to start. (Also a reminder for me here).
I write in my journal very regular (almost daily) and have tons of documents with written thoughts. But sometimes this just isn’t enough. Sometimes I need to write down my thoughts like here, a simple text without much thinking, just writing and letting my fingers flow over they keyboard. It’s not that I need approval from the outside world but writing and publishing it gives me fulfillment.
Maybe it resonates with you.
I believe that the people who need to read it, will read it.
Thank you for your time and energy if you made it until here.
I’m curious about your thoughts. Can you relate? Are you maybe also a writer?
I’d love to hear from you in the comments.
Much love and light,
