Pinterest is my favorite app of all time. If you ever see me on my phone, I am most likely on Pinterest looking at either DIY projects, journal pages, or quotes. I always use this app mainly for writing motivation. Every writer has that phase of them constantly saying, “I’m not good enough.” or “This is the worst story I have ever read in my entire lifetime.” When I feel that way I like to go on Pinterest and read some quotes about writing motivations and every single one that I’ve read makes me feel better about myself and my writings.
Now whenever I write my book I am always thinking, “Oh my gosh, my readers are going to want to put the book down after reading the first paragraph of the prologue.” But that might not be true. I have something to say and I know that there are people out there who want to listen; who are listening. I know that not many people read my blog, but that’s okay because I still know that there are people out there who takes the time to read my thoughts, DIY projects, and short stories. I may not know what they are thinking when they are reading them, but I know that they are listening to what I have to say.
I’ve always been scared to post a short story or poem on my blog because I feel as though I am not as good as the other teen writers and it’s true I’m not. But that doesn’t mean that other people aren’t going to want to read my writings, it just means that I have to keep practicing until I get to the point where I am fully confident in sharing my work. So I guess the overall theme of this is, even though I’m not the best writer it doesn’t mean that people aren’t going to read my writings and it doesn’t mean that I’m not going to be an author. It just means that I have to work a little harder if I want to be a better writer than I was yesterday.
