What Do you Do When All Hope is Lost? — Cristian Mihai

“Many people seem to think it foolish, even superstitious, to believe that the world could still change for the better. And it is true that in winter it is sometimes so bitingly cold that one is tempted to say, ‘What do I care if there is a summer; its warmth is no help to me […]

Doubts

I found that one of a writer’s worst enemies is himself.

It can be very paralyzing when working to make a manuscript, or typing out a story, or even attempting to craft a post when your mind is plagued with doubts.

“Is it good enough? Will it be appreciated? Will it be received well?”

I, myself, do not have the answers to most of these questions.

It can even be easier to just not try at all and do something else, like playing games or sleeping all day, and just push writing off to the side.

Yet, fears and doubts are there for us to overcome.

We have to keep trying. We have to keep pushing.

So what if it’s not good enough? Try again. Make it better.

So what if it is not appreciated? Perhaps you have not met the right audience for your work. Keep pushing.

So what if it was not received well. At least it was read. At least it was done.

You overcame your fear and doubt. You are somehow stronger.

I have found that being a writer is an endless struggle, not only against the world, but also against oneself. Keep fighting.

I haven’t written any decent blog post in years.  Micro-blogging platforms like Twitter and Tumblr, among others has made us lazy when it comes to crafting well-thought out posts. Likewise, it also made us lazy in reading. The TL:DR (too long, didn’t read) culture of the web, our too limited time and our short attention span made us fearful of large walls of text.

Yet, write me must.

Writing as a form of human expression is vital. While I do applaud people who could sum up their thoughts and wits in a few hundred characters and at the sam time make us think or laugh in a short span of time, there are instances when more characters, and more words are needed to expound on an idea.

Here are my five reasons for writing blogs, and which I believe can be your reason for writing, as well. Continue reading “Why I am Returning To Blogging (and you should, too!)”
