I haven’t written anything in the last two weeks. Not because I have run out of ideas, on the contrary, I have a lot of ideas but haven’t seen any kind of rush to write them down. Though this is not necessarily the best policy. That I know because some of the ideas have left and vacated the space they once filled.
Which is very natural. In reality I should be writing the ideas down and putting them aside until I want to write about them. I would serve myself well if I took this advice. Otherwise I am working off an impulse to write when sufficiently inspired. Which is a nice romantic way of writing but altogether impractical.
I would also consider myself, and will probably do so forever, to be an apprentice when it comes to writing. I know there are better writers than me but being the best is not my goal at the moment it is to be a more prolific writer and to be a good one.
This however is not always the case with the way I am presently addressing the issues of writing. I don’t take my writing as serious as I once did, understanding that at times I may invest too much of myself in my writing, which is unsatisfactory
I will only be chasing rainbows because I have to understand that readers may not care as to what a writers goals are. It is like the difference between the tone of a story and the mood. They can be two very different things and have different meanings. The best that I can do is to increase my productivity or to, as mentioned, write story ideas down.
